The Institute for Nonprofit News (INN) is dedicated to helping our member non-profit news organizations produce and distribute stories with the highest impact possible, and to become sustainable nonprofit organizations.
Bruce Theriault, former Corporation for Public Broadcasting senior vice president for journalism and radio, is one of four new directors appointed to the board of the Institute for Nonprofit News, a nationwide network of investigative and public service news outlets.
Cross is a journalism business consultant who has helped launch and position new initiatives in digital media and worked with both commercial companies and nonprofits to generate new revenue and craft communication strategies.
The grant will help INN provide business training for leaders in member nonprofit organizations. INN is planning at least four regional sessions on best practices in nonprofit management, marketing, legal issues and more.
The additional members signal growth in the organization of more than 100 nonprofit news organizations that produce a diverse range of journalism from local, state and regional news to single-subject enterprise reporting.
The Student Press Law Center will help INN member newsrooms based at universities deal with the unique set of challenges they face, including the navigation of relationships with universities and their policies, privacy issues, and the involvement of student reporters.
