The Ethics and Excellence in Journalism Foundation has announced the distribution of $1.85 million in grants to 24 journalism organizations nationwide.
Founded by Edith Kinney Gaylord, the Oklahoma City-based Ethics and Excellence in Journalism Foundation's mission is to invest in the future of journalism by building the ethics, skills and opportunities needed to advance principled, probing news and information.
