Ideas from nonprofit news
PART 1: Partnerships
Collaboration with other organizations is a key element of most nonprofit newsrooms, and it often enables them to go after projects they could not deliver otherwise. Steve Engelberg of ProPublica and Joaquin Alvarado of The Center for Investigative Reporting (CIR) explain what goes into making these efforts work.
PART 2: Impact
For nonprofit organizations, the definition of success is often broader than simply generating page views, so new methods are emerging to gauge the impact and outcomes from the journalism. We explore how ProPublica and CIR are considering these alternatives to traditional metrics.
PART 3: Audience focus
Some nonprofit outlets are finding success by targeting a specific niche audience or subject area. Gabriel Dance of The Marshall Project and Tim Griggs of The Texas Tribune explain how sticking to one specific focus helps them attract and maintain funding.
