Investing in journalism

The Walkley Foundation invests back in Australian journalism by offering grants to support public interest journalism, fellowships and training. We’re also building a digital archive of six decades of Walkley-winning journalism as a resource for journalists, students, and the public. The Walkley Foundation is a not-for-profit organisation and relies on support from corporate organisations, foundations and individuals to develop our wide range of programs.
