A two-day session (Sept. 11-12 2014) designed for foundation leaders who are interested in strategies for growing reach and engagement on digital platforms. 

Most journalism focuses on what’s going wrong in society. But audiences increasingly seek news that help them to understand what can be done to improve things.

The Knight Digital Media Center, in partnership with Grantmakers of Oregon and Southeast Washington, Oregon Public Broadcasting, and Oregon Community Foundation, presents a unique two-day workshop exploring how community foundations can better engage the public around issues they care about by using new digital tools and best practices.

Find the right metrics to assess the impact of community information.

Helping the local community tell its stories is not without its challenges and rewards – some unexpected and some delightful. Learn how one community foundation has tapped into citizen reporting to engage local residents. 

Want to reach your community? Theyre on their phones! Learn how to engage them there. 

Organizations can build effective impact measurement when it becomes part of the story planning process. 

The Knight Digital Media Center and the Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation and the Community Foundation of New Jersey present a unique two-day workshop exploring how community foundations can better engage the public around issues they care about by using new digital tools and best practices.
