Grants to Support Newspaper In Education
Programs at Missouri Newspapers


The Missouri Press Foundation is a non-profit organized exclusively for charitable, literary or educational purposes including such activities as providing journalism scholarships and faculty honorariums, conducting journalism seminars, making journalism merit awards, coordinating Newspaper In Education programs, collecting and preserving old printing presses and printing equipment, operating a print shop museum in historic Arrow Rock, Mo., and other journalistic activities.

The Missouri Press Foundation gives Newspaper In Education donors and potential donors a choice in making contributions to fund classroom newspapers for schools serviced by MPA-member newspapers.

Donors have the option of sending their gift to the Missouri Press Foundation or sending their checks directly to a specific newspaper. Using the Foundation as the recipient of gifts may allow individuals, corporations and foundations to deduct their donations as a charitable contribution.

Here's how the program works:

1. The donor must complete the contributor's form containing all information about the donation, including the newspaper NIE program(s) designated to receive the donation.

2. The Missouri Press Foundation will reimburse the newspaper for the classroom newspapers provided to schools, for 98 percent of the amount of contributions received and earmarked for that newspaper. Effective August 2007, a 2 percent administration fee is retained by Foundation.

3. Missouri Press Foundation will confirm receipt of donations. Both donors and designated newspaper NIE programs will receive confirmations from the Foundation.

For more information about providing grants to support Newspaper In Education programs, contact us at Missouri Press Foundation, 573-449-4167, or send an e-mail to Dawn Kitchell.
