Help Support Missouri Newspaper Interns on Giving Tuesday

In Foundation News On
- Updated

On Tuesday, Dec. 1, the Missouri Press Foundation is joining with other non-profit organizations around the world to celebrate a day dedicated to giving back. “Giving Tuesday,” the Tuesday following Thanksgiving, Black Friday and Cyber Monday, kicks off the giving season. We are asking for your support, while also asking “what can we accomplish when we all work together?”

The Missouri Press Foundation needs your help to fund its 2016 summer intern program.

Each summer, the Missouri Press Foundation supports as many as 10 journalism students as they work at Missouri newspapers. Student interns work as reporters, editors, photographers, designers, advertising representatives or website editors/reporters. In some cases they wear many hats throughout their four-, six- or eight-week internship. They gain hands-on experience, a real sense about what working in the industry is like and an experienced mentor.

  • $1000 Funds an 8-week Internship
  • $500 Funds a 4-week Internship
  • $250 Funds an Intern for 2 weeks
  • $125 Funds an Intern for 1 week
  • $50 Funds an Intern for 2 days
  • $25 Funds an Intern for 1 Day

This Giving Tuesday, our goal is to raise $1,000 to fund one intern. With your support, we’ll place newspaper journalism students with newspaper mentors and encourage them to pursue newspaper journalism as a career. Supporting our bright students now will ensure a bright future for Missouri newspapers. Please click on the “donate now” button below to make a donation.

Thank you for your contribution.

P.S. It will take many of us acting today to reach this goal. What can we accomplish when we all work together? Can we count on you? Please be a part of this global celebration of a new tradition of generosity and donate now!
