Local news is facing economic pressure, and the American Journalism Project (AJP) hopes philanthropy can help. A nonprofit organization that funds local, nonprofit newsrooms around the country, AJP pitches funding journalism as a civic institution, similar to how financiers donate to local theaters and ballets. From 2019 to 2021, AJP raised more than $50 million to support local news, according to the group’s nonprofit forms. The document for the 2022 year is not yet available.
