The Robert R. McCormick Foundation is one funder that’s very attuned to young people’s interests in journalism and, as part of its larger grantmaking in this area, has often supported efforts to nurture that interest. Earlier this fall, for example, the foundation renewed its support of Free Spirit Media in Chicago with a two-year grant of $300,000 to expand its youth journalism program. The foundation also made grants to the True Star Foundation and the Community Television Network to support youth journalism.
