Last update


The Threshold Foundation is happy to introduce a new topic for its Special Initiative Committee: Strategic Media. In 2004-05 and 2005-06, this committee will make grants to strategic media reform projects. The focus reflects the community's concern that the current corporate-controlled commercial media structure presents a crisis for democracy. The Strategic Media Committee will fund creative approaches to building a more diverse and democratic media structure. It will consider organizing and advocacy around media reform and new alliances and formations to support independent voices.

Because MU is limited in the number of applications it may make for this program, letters of intent must be submitted to the Office of Research,, no later than 5:00 pm Friday, September 30, 2005. Letters of intent should be limited to 1250 words (~5 pages) and should be a draft of the letter of inquiry to be sent to the Foundation.

Amount: Grant amounts have historically ranged between $1,000 and $100,000. The typical grant is between $10,000 and $35,000.
MU Deadline: September 30, 2005
Foundation Deadline:
