BENEFITING: SFJ FOUNDATION

THE STORY:

We are the storytellers and cultural historians working in newsrooms across the country. Our work makes you laugh and cry, amuses, informs and provokes. Most importantly, we hold a mirror up to our communities. 

The Society for Features Journalism is committed to developing news-gathering staffs representative of the multicultural communities its members serve, and nuturing the next generation of journalists. 

Each year SFJ sponsors the Penny Bender Fuchs Diversity Fellowship Program for journalists of color in conjunction with its annual conference. This year's conference is at the University of Maryland, where SFJ is based. There, the fellowship recipients will receive hands-on training with a heavy emphasis on multimedia, leadership and writing.

Here’s what your donation will do for SFJ Diversity Fellows: 

$35: Shuttle from the airport to the University of Maryland

$50:  Underwrite the costs for a fellow to attend an SFJ panel discussion on how to help your newsroom make the transition to digital; or a session on ‘show-and-steal’ content ideas to drive traffic and engage readers; or training on how to sharpen your quick video skills. 

$75:  Shuttle to Washington for Q/A session with columnist Gene Weingarten and followed by a reception with editor Marty Baron. 

$150: Foot the bill for one night at the conference hotel. 

$1,000: Underwrite the total cost for one fellow. 

$5,000-$10,000: Help SFJ launch a mentorship program that pairs professionals with college journalism students, including a weekend writing bootcamp in Washington D.C., distance learning and ongoing personal mentorship.     

The SFJ Foundation is a 501c3, and your donations are tax deductible.
