What if my organization is a sub-publication or second property of a larger organization with operating expenses above $1M?

News properties or publications that operate under a larger parent organization with operating expenses above $1M will not be eligible for main match, but may still receive goal-based bonus or partner funds.

Because NewsMatch grant dollars provide general operating support funds to the legal organizational entity, we reference the entire organization’s financial data as criteria for the matching grant funds.

If your newsroom's legal entity is a university or fiscal sponsor, we will reference the calendar year total expenses of your individual publication.
