VIDEO: We Make Journalists Better

Our Mission

The National Press Foundation is a 501(c)(3) whose primary mission is educating journalists on the complex issues of the day and training them on the latest digital tools. The foundation recognizes and encourages excellence in journalism through its awards and programs.

Since 1976, the foundation has provided in-person professional development opportunities to thousands of editors, producers and reporters, helping them better understand and explain the impact of public policy on readers and viewers. Programs are held in the nation’s capital, around the country and overseas; they bring journalists together with leading authorities to discuss significant issues ranging from agriculture and economics to politics and Zika.

From these expert speakers, NPF produces digital curriculum that is posted to its website, allowing journalists across the world to access the best expertise and enhance their reporting.
