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.
