Craig Newmark gifts Trust Project $150K
Craig Newmark, founder of craigslist and Craig Newmark Philanthropies, has deepened his commitment to the Trust Project with a $150,000 gift to support its work. The contribution will help the Project continue to fulfill its mission of building trust and transparency in news as it enters Phase II of its rollout, increasing news partner participation, building public awareness, and fine-tuning the Trust Indicators. This is the sixth donation that Newmark has made to the Project, hosted by the Markkula Center for Applied Ethics at Santa Clara University.
“I’m a news consumer and want news I can trust. The Trust Project gets to the gist of what that means by helping to strengthen news transparency and more,” said Newmark, the Project’s first funder. “I want to do all I can to support this instrumental work.”
