Opportunity Description

Description
WFF does not accept unsolicited grant applications and prospective grantees are required to write letters of inquiry explaining their proposals to WFF before being invited to apply. Apparent regional bias to grantees in AR/Mississippi Delta but open to applicants nationwide (have funded projects in CA, NY, DC). Wrt journalism, WFF issues funding in support of content production and reporter training. Content has minimum production and word count requirements and will be evaluated via digital analytics. Training grants are evaluated based off of total attendance. They have also previously provided funds for open access publishing fees in an effort to remove paywalls to environmental reporting/research. There is no hard cap on funding, in the past they have issued awards as high as $1,000,000 to journalistic institutions. https://www.waltonfamilyfoundation.org/grants/grant-proposals https://www.waltonfamilyfoundation.org/learning/journalism-impact-primer
