Published on

On May 1, Knight Foundation is launching a contest with a local focus — the Knight Community Information Challenge. While the contest funds all types of news and information projects, the priority of this year’s contest is to fund projects that make “open government” more tangible and useful to people in a specific community—which makes this contest a unique opportunity for anyone wanting to build and test a new idea locally. Find out more at http://kng.ht/ZPwCPd. Please note: The challenge deadline has been extended to July 1, 2013.

  • Knight Community Information Challenge: Funding Local News and Information Projects
  • New title: 2013 Challenge; text: Matching grants contest: Open call for ideas May 1 – June 1; Projects must partner with a community foundation or place-based funder; Contest provides seed funding to test new ideas; Preference for Open Government ideas;
  • I ’d keep just the headline and the part in italic, and dump the rest of the text below it
  • Find a pic. This should look like a dictionary definition: Community Foundation (noun): Build permanent collections of endowed funds to benefit a specific geographic community; provide leadership on community issues; 700 nationwide. Find yours: http://kng.ht/17hHarO
  • - Research: Look at their funding priorities. See how you might fit. - Knight funding: Check whether they have received Knight funding in the past, particularly through the challenge (all grants at knightfoundation.org) - Contact: Discern who on staff might be best to approach. Most have a programming VP who would be the contact. At smaller foundations, the executive director might be best. - Make contact: Ask for a meeting by telling them 3 things: a) I have a project I ’d like to tell you about; b) it might qualify for Knight Foundation funding; c) We could partner to seek that funding and have an impact on issues we both care about.
