How do I report donations to be matched?

After the campaign has ended, NewsMatch asks newsrooms to complete the INN Index Survey to evaluate the program’s impact. This is a critical step and instrumental in engaging funders to support the program. It also alerts program staff and funders to challenges, needs, and opportunities in the field and informs the program strategy from year to year.

Newsrooms eligible and requesting to receive matching funds, partner funds, or bonus funds must also submit a NewsMatch Documentation Submission. As part of this process, you will submit documentation and information to The Miami Foundation to process and verify your payment amount.

For step-by-step instructions on how to submit this information for your organization, check out the NewsMatch Reporting Guide for further details.
