The Ethics and Excellence in Journalism Foundation was established in 1982 by Edith Kinney Gaylord to support charitable and educational projects. An Advisory Committee meets periodically to review requests and recommend grants, after which the Directors act on the recommendations and if approved, distributions are made.

Proposals to Ethics and Excellence in Journalism Foundation are initiated through our online Grant Request System. To be considered, submit a Letter of Inquiry by 5:00 p.m. CST May 15th or November 15th. Letters will be accepted beginning two months before the deadline. Should the 15th fall on a weekend or national holiday, the request will be due the following business day.

All income from the Ethics and Excellence in Journalism Foundation, except costs of administration and possible taxes, has been designated by the founder for charitable and educational purposes. All distributions must meet the definition of a "qualifying distribution" as set forth in Section 4942(g) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended, or applicable provisions of other federal tax laws.
