The US-based Knight Foundation will engage community foundations in a grant-making challenge to find creative uses of media and technology to help keep communities informed and their citizens engaged.
The initiative will make $20 million available over five years. The challenge is open to all community foundations, who will be required to provide matching funds. Interested foundations must provide a proposal of 200 words or less between June 30 and September 15 2008. Selected applicants will be invited to submit a full proposal by October 15 2008.
