The Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF) approved 95 new grants totaling over $80 million. The grants were awarded in support of journalism, civic engagement, and inclusion and access efforts globally.
Grants were awarded to ninety-five organizations in the United States, Greece, the United Kingdom, and elsewhere, including the incubator for Media Education and Development (iMEdD), an organization launched in 2018 in Athens with the exclusive support of SNF that works to promote transparency, independence, and excellence in the field of journalism; Chatham House in London, in support of a new SNF Wing and an ideas and innovation lab that will provide the institute with the tools it needs to expand and upgrade its digital research and analysis; and the Center for Strategic and International Studies in Washington, D.C., in support of an expansion of its CSIS Journalism Bootcamp, which brings together journalists from the U.S., Greece, and other countries for an intensive week of seminars and workshops.
SNF has been supporting stellar independent and ethical journalistic practices through collaborations with a wide range of partners, including the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism and Bloomberg Media Initiative Africa. New grants in this area deepen existing partnerships and launch new ones.
