Many small news nonprofits feel overlooked by funders. A new coalition is giving them a voice
Briefly

The Athens County Independent is a nonprofit news outlet that was started by Corinne Colbert after she was fired as editor of The Athens News. The Independent covers local news and acts as a watchdog for local institutions.
Through a crowdfunding campaign, she raised about $18,000 to start a nonprofit news outlet; by 'late spring,' community foundation grants had brought Colbert and her founding team up to nearly $50,000.
The Independent covers topics that affect residents' day-to-day lives, such as community park revamps and local restaurant reviews. It also reports on candidates for office and keeps an eye on local institutions like Ohio University. The newsroom recently covered a case about university liability for abuse by a former police officer.
