Here at I-News, we feel like we’ve been awarded the Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval.
In just the past week, I’ve had two conversations with individuals who are interested in helping I-News sustain quality, in-depth journalism in Colorado. When I told them our current supporters include The Denver Foundation, it was as if I’d said the magic words.
I-News received a $5,000 grant from The Denver Foundation this year. We appreciate the funding (do we ever!). But just as valuable – and likely even more so in the long-run – is the level of respect and trust that comes with being a grantee of Colorado’s oldest and largest community foundation.
The Denver Foundation – one of the Top 25 community foundations in the nation in terms of giving – has a reputation of rigorously vetting the organizations it supports.
We appreciate that kind of fact-checking here at I-News!
The Denver Foundation called I-News “an impressive organization” with both early success and strong potential. They like how I-News is helping long-time media competitors become collaborators so we can bring important information to the public.
David Miller, president and CEO of The Denver Foundation, put it this way: “I-News is doing very important and valuable work in our community.”
The Denver Foundation’s mission is to strengthen the community. We are proud and thankful the foundation believes I-News is a valuable part of that work. And we appreciate our fellow Coloradans who want to help sustain our work.
