Inspired to action: Support journalism at its best

Journalism, at its best, tells the stories of our communities, amplifies silenced voices and documents the moments that define us. At the highest levels, the journalists who pursue the truth in the face of misinformation, disinformation, confusion and a rhetoric that discredits the press at every turn, are truly an inspiration to all of us who seek to do this good work.

Through our Edward R. Murrow Awards, the Radio Television Digital News Association & Foundation honor their incredible journalism and strive to show both journalists and the public that quality, credible and impactful journalism is being created at all levels.

We can do so much more with your help. Your generous gift allows us to continue our important work as an association and foundation: providing education around the country to empower more journalists with the tools they need to be successful, awarding scholarships and fellowships to help grow and strengthen the next generation of journalists, and advocating for journalism, the First Amendment, and a free and vibrant press at all levels.
