NewsMatch 101: A guide to get started (for first-time participants)

Open guide

NewsMatch is designed by people with personal experience fundraising for nonprofit news. Many of us have been in your shoes, working at small nonprofit news organizations, hustling to find every dollar and every minute in the day to get the work done and keep the lights on. We’re here to help however we can, and in return, we ask that you trust our recommendations and give them a try. 

For first-time participants and small organizations, it’s helpful to think about NewsMatch in four stages: Training, Campaign Readiness, Match Period, and Reporting. 

We know that every organization comes to NewsMatch with a unique set of resources and goals for participation, and we welcome that. We are here to work with you to make sure that your NewsMatch is a success.

This is your guide to getting started.
