Road Ahead PhotoUnder the sponsorship of the Center for Strategic Philanthropy and Civil Society; the DeWitt Wallace Center for Media and Democracy, and the Duke Center for the Study of Philanthropy and Voluntarism, a group of leaders from nonprofit and commercial media, foundations, and academia gathered May 4-5, 2009, at Duke’s Sanford Institute of Public Policy for a series of working sessions to explore new models for nonprofit ownership of media.

 

The conference moved beyond current calls for increased nonprofit media support to the next stage: examining barriers to greater nonprofit and foundation ownership of media outlets, as well as barriers to nonprofit-sector subsidies for the creation of information. The conference report includes a summary by Professor James T. Hamilton of the DeWitt Wallace Center of the working-group discussions. The report also includes the six background papers prepared for the sessions.
