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 Missouri Press Foundation Director, Michael Harper, at mharper@mopress.com or 573-449-4167 ext. 303 to get started or complete and return the Page Builders pledge form to make your commitment today.  Your tax-deductible gift is broken down into smaller deductions from your monthly MPS advertising checks.  The amounts are given to the Foundation until your pledge is fulfilled or until the end of the year. Missouri Press Service also makes a nearly 50% 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.

Thank you to all of our 2019 Page Builders for your commitment to the future of print journalism:
