The Best of Nonprofit News

Every day, nonprofit newsrooms across the U.S. produce rigorous public service journalism that elevates diverse voices, informs communities and holds the powerful accountable.

In 2018, the newsrooms and journalists who are members of the Institute for Nonprofit News — nearly 200 news organizations, including Maryland Matters — told us stories no one else was reporting and changed communities for the better.

We invite you to check out the best of those stories by clicking here. You’ll find important articles on immigration, local accountability, child welfare, education, climate change, health and health care, gun violence, criminal justice, community well-being, sexual misconduct, money and influence, world affairs, and U.S. democracy.

As part of its “best of” series, INN has included a Maryland Matters story from March, in which reporter William F. Zorzi revealed that a high-ranking Baltimore County official was a key informant in an ongoing political corruption case – and that he had in fact run afoul of the law himself.

If you value stories such as these, please consider supporting us. Between now and the end of the year, your contribution will be matched by a consortium of national funders who are committed to advancing the reporting that websites like Maryland Matters produce. You can contribute by clicking here or by sending a check, made out to the Maryland Matters Fund, to P.O. Box 11121, Takoma Park, MD 20913.

Thank you for your consideration! And enjoy reading these terrific stories!
