ABOUT US

Founded in 1966 (as The Nation Institute), Type Media Center is home to a half-dozen programs and a community of hundreds of journalists, authors, and writing fellows. Our dynamic range of programs includes a bestselling book publishing imprint, Bold Type Books (formerly known as Nation Books); our award-winning Type Investigations (formerly known as the Investigative Fund), which supports groundbreaking investigative journalism; TomDispatch, the widely read and syndicated website; Fellowships that fund over 25 high-profile reporters every year; Prize programs that spotlight invaluable achievements; and high-profile Events that provide a platform for key journalists, thinkers, and activists to discuss the urgent and important issues of our time.

Type Media Center meets the highest standards of governance, openness, ethical practices, and fiscal responsibility established by Charity Navigator:
