Last Chance for End of Year Giving!

December 29, 2014

The Missouri Press Foundation is the only non-profit organization dedicated to the well-being of Missouri’s newspapers. Our mission is to honor the past, protect the present and build the future of journalism in general and Missouri newspapers in particular as a vibrant force in a democratic society. The Foundation was founded in 1984 to become the educational arm of the Missouri Press Association and help to ensure a bright future for Missouri newspapers. It was hoped, by providing training programs for Missouri newspapers’ staff and awarding scholarships to Missourians studying community journalism, that the Foundation would ultimately strengthen communities throughout Missouri. The founding members believed good newspapers translated into good, vibrant communities. If you share that belief, we ask that you consider a donation to The Missouri Press Foundation. Make your gift before December 31st and help the Foundation expand its reach in 2015 – and you may be eligible for a charitable donation deduction when you file your taxes this year. Thank you for your support!
