Empowering people in the communities we serve.

Media Grants

A key role of the TEGNA Foundation is investing in the future of the media industry. The TEGNA Foundation supports several journalism education and training programs each year.

Our media funding mission is to support freedom of the press, ethics in journalism, and education and training for the next generation of diverse journalists. The Foundation particularly favors programs or projects that benefit the areas in which TEGNA does business and that seek to encourage diversity in newsrooms and in coverage.

We do not consider funding local community programs or those at community colleges and high schools.
