A Special Thanks
We are deeply grateful to a very special group of Maynard Institute
"Family" members who contribute financially to our work. Through their personal commitment, they strengthen the Institute's impact and capacity for accelerating the changes required for news media to reflect a multicultural America in content, staffing and business operations.
This group of Maynard Institute Family members support our work--and is helping us meet a challenge from The Ford Foundation. The foundation approved a three-year, $1 million grant to the Institute that includes a challenge component, matching contributions from individuals, dollar for dollar.
During 1999, more than 80 Maynard IJE Family members contributed nearly $65,000. During the past two years, the Maynard Institute has received more than $100,000 in contributions from 100 individuals.
We are reaching our goal because so many of you have contributed generously. This year we have an opportunity to rise to the challenge again. Please consider making your own contribution to help the next generation of leaders in the news revolution.
