By The Numbers

Bay City News Service has been serving the Bay Area media ecosystem since 1979 with reports on civic government, courts and breaking news. To round out that coverage with public service journalism about the people, places and issues that deserve more attention, we established Bay City News Foundation in 2018. Since then, the 501(c)(3) nonprofit has hit some significant milestones:

Our Mission

Bay City News Foundation serves the San Francisco Bay Area and is backed by charitable donations from contributors who care about local news, a free press, democratic values and an informed citizenry. We target geographic and topical news deserts. We collaborate with other media. We experiment with technology. We work with journalism schools to train the next generation of reporters. Help us do more with a donation today.

Individual and institutional donors help us with projects aimed at:

Providing on-the-ground local news reporting and filling the geographic and topical gaps left by contracting legacy media companies in the region. You can find many of these stories about Bay Area news, arts and culture, demographic trends, the environment, equity and history at In 2019, we started putting additional resources into covering Contra Costa County and Martinez when that city’s local paper closed and we have also expanded into San Joaquin, Monterey and Santa Cruz counties. We now serve 12 counties. In 2022, with help from the Silicon Valley Community Foundation, we expanded partnerships with independent and ethnic media outlets to better serve local audiences with important and community-based news.

Building partnerships with other media and nonprofit groups to do journalism projects. We have been working with Solutions Journalism Network, Big Local News at Stanford, SF Senior Beat, CALmatters, EdSource, The Conversation, USC Annenberg Center for Health Journalism, Catchlight, PolicyLink, Renaissance Journalism, ProPublica Local, Report for America and others to amplify good and important work. We welcome inquiries from philanthropic partners to do collaborative work in the months ahead as we navigate through the COVID-19 pandemic and explore issues such as aging, housing, health care, education, transportation, the environment, and arts and culture.

Testing new technology to gather and distribute news in the ways consumers want to get it. We have collaborated with entrepreneurs from the JSK Journalism Fellowship program at Stanford University, Project Facet, Coral, Agenda Watch, Bloom, Starling Lab and others to test new AI, distribution, mapping, audience engagement and photo authentication products. We are partnering with Newspack to use the WordPress publishing platform for local websites. We are working with Microsoft to modernize our internal story assignment, creation and editing workflows. We are open to experimentation.

Supporting the next generation of journalists with internships and training. We work with San Francisco State, San Jose State, Cal State East Bay, UC Berkeley, Newsroom by the Bay at Stanford University, the Rebele Internship Program, the Emma Bowen Foundation, Dow Jones, CUNY and others to train and mentor students so they have a professional path toward journalism jobs. A generous seed donation from the Hogan-Newton Fund at the Miami Foundation and additional support from the Arjay and Frances Miller Foundation are helping to “turbocharge” this program by giving substantive mentoring to these interns.

How Your Donation

Makes A Difference

Bay City News Foundation fills significant gaps in coverage that are appearing as the result of legacy media companies contracting. Without this service, many stories about local government, courts and cops, breaking news, and core issues like transportation, education, the environment, and arts and culture would go unreported and the citizenry would be uninformed about the most important issues facing their Bay Area communities. Your donation will help us tell more of those stories.

In addition, the Hogan-Newton Fund at the Miami Foundation in November announced its first journalism grants, $10,000 to Bay City News Foundation to “turbocharge” our paid internship program. This has grown thanks to the Arjay and Frances Miller Foundation, the Connemara Fund and other donors. We are seeking additional support to provide paid internships year-round. Bay City News, which for 40 years has provided around-the-clock news coverage to most of the San Francisco Bay Area’s news outlets, routinely hires young journalists eager to get reporting and writing experience. These grants provide funds for mentoring as well as travel, research and other activities to help interns do substantive journalistic projects that will set their portfolios apart.
