For over 25 years, the Missouri Press Foundation has been working to make Missouri’s newspapers better.

  • Promoting education through internships, scholarships, training, regional meeting support, preservation and Newspapers In Education.


The Missouri Press Foundation, founded in 1984, is dedicated to helping Missouri’s newspapers meet the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead.

With your help, we can continue with this important mission for another 25+ years. Please support us with your tax-deductible donation.

Foundation Builders Program
Missouri Press Foundation's Foundation Builders fund-raising program, which began in 2001, involves making a pledge of advertising revenue. Newspapers can pledge the equivalent of a half-page of advertising revenue annually for one to five years – or indefinitely.
Missouri Press Service will withhold from national advertising checks an amount equal to your newspaper's pledge. MPS's commission also will go to the Foundation.
