Support The Lenfest Institute

Local journalism is building a new and dynamic future — and you can be part of it. The Lenfest Institute for Journalism is working to build sustainable business models for great local journalism in Philadelphia and around the United States.

As the non-profit owner of The Philadelphia Inquirer, The Institute supports high-impact investigative reporting; innovative technology; and newsrooms that serve diverse, growing audiences.

Our work is entirely supported by private philanthropy, and your tax-deductible gift will help advance our mission of saving local news. Leadership donors who support the Institute with an annual gift of $2,500 or more are invited to join the Lenfest Council for Journalism and Democracy, which offers a host of benefits that will deepen your engagement and understanding of the transformation of the news that is happening at this historic moment.
