Nov. 27 is Giving Tuesday, when hundreds of non-profits in 55 countries get a chance to double the value of donations with matching funds. It’s also the day that NewsMatch holds what it now calls Giving Newsday, with $3 million in matching foundation funds to augment donations to 155 non-profit news organizations (donations made through the end of the year will be matched). The non-profits – generally doing in-depth investigative work that for-profits no longer can afford – range from the Pulitzer Prize-winning Pro Publica to magazines such as Mother Jones and Washington Monthly, to Public Radio International and tiny operations in Wyoming, Hawaii and North Dakota. I talked with Pro Publica’s president and a top exec at Giving Tuesday’s founding organization, 92Y, about giving instead of just buying. ‘Tis the season. Give a listen, won’t you?
