Over the last decade, we have seen a rapid expansion of media platforms with the rise of Internet and mobile technologies.  In an effort to capture this evolving landscape, the Foundation Center, with support from the John S. and James L. McKnight Foundation and the Wyncote Foundation, and in collaboration with Media Impact Funders, GuideStar, and the Ford Foundation, took a closer look at media-related grantmaking in the U.S. and recently published their findings.

Below is a list of highlights from the report based on tracking from 2009 to 2011.  The good news?  Overall, foundations are increasing their support in media-related work across multiple areas.
