Media News - Wednesday, August 08, 2012
The Ethics and Excellence in Journalism foundation announced Tuesday that it will award about USD 1.84 million in grants to journalism organizations worldwide – including about USD 325,000 to groups in California. The Oklahoma City-based foundation, founded by the late journalist Edith Kinney Gaylord, awarded the grants to organizations for projects that addressed their core areas of focus. The foundation strives to build “ethics, skills and opportunities needed to advance principled, probing news and information,” according to a release. The foundation will donate USD 50,000 to the Los Angeles bureau of Youth News Service for a satellite bureau at Locke High School in Watts. The second bureau will provide another work location for students unable to travel to the main office in Los Angeles, the release said. The foundation will also donate USD 75,000 to UC Berkeley for data reporting and visualization workshops; USD 100,000 to the Institute for Justice and Journalism for Immigration in the Heartland, based in Oakland, to fund a four-day fellowship program on immigration; and USD 100,000 to Investigative Newsource in San Diego to create a financial model that relies on several revenue streams, including joint fund-raising with public broadcasting outlets.
