A new International Fund for Public Interest Media

Independent public interest media matters now more than ever. It is a critical building block for healthy democracies everywhere. It is fundamental to countering the malicious spread of mis- and dis- information, to free and fair elections, and ensuring space where civil and democratic norms can thrive.

Enabling the development, sustainability, and independence of public interest media

Launched at the fourth edition of the Paris Peace Forum, the International Fund for Public Interest Media (IFPIM) is a new initiative to create the step change needed to enable the development, sustainability, and independence of public interest media, especially in resource-poor and fragile settings. The Fund is co-chaired by Maria Ressa, 2021 Nobel Peace Prize laureate, and New York Times President and CEO Mark Thompson.
