In recognition of generous donations from more than 400 individual donors to The Maine Monitor’s 2022 end of year fundraising drive and its three local matching challenge donors, NewsMatch awarded The Maine Monitor $21,000 in grant money on April 5.  

During the end of year appeal, more than 190 new donors joined the community supporting The Maine Monitor’s investigative news reporting that seeks to inform Mainers about the issues impacting their lives. 

NewsMatch is a collaborative fundraising campaign open to members of the Institute for Nonprofit News (INN), which leads the INN Network of more than 400 independent news organizations across North America working to fill the void left by the decline of local newspapers

The INN Network has grown more than 200% since 2017. To join, newsrooms must be independent and non-partisan, and committed to news as a civic good.

In 2022, NewsMatch supporters included Democracy Fund, Heising-Simons Foundation, Inasmuch Foundation,  Independence Public Media Foundation, John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, Jonathan Logan Family Foundation, Joyce Foundation, Kaphan Foundation, Loud Hound, Maida Lynn, Natasha and Dirk Ziff, The Schwab Charitable Fund, made possible by the generosity of the Present Progressive Fund, Solidarity Giving, Walton Family Foundation, William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, and Wyncote Foundation, as well as close to 800 local match funders. In-kind support provided by The New York Times.
