We know you have many choices when it comes to charitable giving but please earmark a few dollars to support the industry that employs you. The Local Media Foundation exists to assist local media companies with the digital transformation. Donated funds are used to provide research, best practices and case studies to the industry. The continuation of this good work relies on private donations from people like you.
Peter Bakke, Director of Digital Media at Wick Communications had this to say when asked why he donates to the Local Media Foundation:
“We are all trying to figure out the complex transformation of our business. The Local Media Foundation is our partner in this journey. There are many exciting, informative and cutting-edge projects the Foundation works on to help us succeed. I look at my donation to the Foundation as an investment in our industry's future.“

And Matt Walsh, CEO/Editor/Publisher, The Observer Group, Inc. noted, “We have found that the Local Media Foundation and what it provides our little company is tantamount to having a first-rate R&D department that we could never afford otherwise. If you want to stay in business, ahead of your competitors and abreast of trends, I believe you will find this is a small investment with a worthwhile ROI.”
The Local Media Foundation has a reputation for being innovative and leading edge. Programs such as the recent Innovation Mission are indicative of the organization's commitment to assist the community media industry during this time of unprecedented change. Along with Local Media Association, both organizations strive to provide a leadership role in the industry by suggesting solutions to problems instead of just reporting on them or covering them at conferences.
