How are we funded?

The core needs of the GFMD are covered by membership fees and pro bono contributions from its members. At times, the GFMD receives grants or loans from institutional and private donors for specific activities. Donors that supported the GFMD have included the Open Society Foundations, John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, National Endowment for Democracy, European Commission, Norwegian Agency for Development Cooperation (NORAD) and United Nations Development Fund (UNDEF).


The GFMD is supported by a grant of The Foundation Open Society Institute in cooperation with the Program on Independent Journalism of the Open Society Foundations.
