Foundation Builders Program
For over 25 years, the Missouri Press Foundation has been working to make Missouri’s newspapers better.
- Recognizing outstanding journalism and photojournalism through the Better Newspaper Contest.
- 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 Page Builders Program
Missouri Press Foundation’s Page Builders fundraising program, which began in 2001, involves making a pledge of advertising revenue. Newspapers can pledge the dollar amount of a half or full page of advertising in their newspaper. Pledge commitments can be made for one or more years.
Donating is simple! Just contact MPF Director, Michael Harper, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 573-449-4167 ext. 303 to get started or complete and return the Page Builders pledge form to make your commitment today. Deductions from your monthly Missouri Press Service advertising checks are given to the Foundation until your pledge for the year is fulfilled. MPS also makes a partial-match donation to the Foundation on top of yours to increase the reach of your generous gift.
The funds you give through the Page Builders program allow the Foundation to continue our mission as we focus on increasing funding for summer internships across the state, continuing to honor outstanding journalism, financially supporting district press associations, and increasing support for the Missouri Press Association annual convention.
