The Online News Association is a nonprofit membership organization for digital journalists, connecting journalism, technology and innovation. 

The competitive $1 million Challenge Fund for Innovation in Journalism Education is the brainchild of a collaborative that includes the Excellence and Ethics in Journalism Foundation, the Robert R. McCormick Foundation, the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, the Democracy Fund and the Rita Allen Foundation.
