The Knight Foundation is matching up to $1.5 million in donations to more than 50 nonprofit news organizations, the foundation said Monday.

Participating organizations are eligible for up to $25,000 in matching grants. (Full disclosure: The Nieman Foundation, which is home to us here at Nieman Lab, is participating in the matching program; you can donate to Nieman here. Knight also supports the Lab.)

There are 57 nonprofit outlets participating in the program. Donors can contribute directly to the organization they want to support. Knight will be matching donations through Jan. 19, 2017 — the day before Donald Trump is inaugurated as president.

In the weeks since Trump was elected, donations to nonprofit outlets and subscriptions to for-profit outlets have increased. Earlier this month, ProPublica said that it had taken in $750,000 in small-dollar donations since the election. The New York Times said it added about 132,000 subscribers in the weeks after Trump’s win. And just this week, Vanity Fair said it added 13,000 subscriptions in one day after Trump insulted the magazine on Twitter after it ran a negative review of a restaurant in Trump Tower.

Here, along with Nieman, is the full list of news organizations participating in Knight’s matching program:

Are news publishers directly liable for embedding tweets that contain images not created by that tweeter?
A New York federal judge ruled that when publishers from The Boston Globe to Vox Media to Breitbart “caused the embedded tweets to appear on their websites, their actions violated plaintiff’s exclusive display right.”

“It’s not so much about gaming Facebook’s algorithm or working with the Facebook changes as much as it is taking advantage of Facebook as a truly social platform.”
Should we consider fake news another form of (not particularly effective) political persuasion — or something more dangerous?
