Jeff Bezos supports NLP with $250,000 gift


Alan C. Miller

Founder and CEO

We are thrilled to announce that Jeff Bezos, the CEO of Amazon and owner of The Washington Post, has donated $250,000 to the News Literacy Project.

As news literacy has gained such an important seat at the table of civic discourse, we at NLP have seen a massive amount of new interest in our programs. Jeff’s generous gift underscores this in a major way and will help us expand the fight for facts.

His support comes at a moment of enormous need for our programs, and it gives us a great opportunity to reach far more teachers and students with our Checkology® virtual classroom, which provides students the tools to become news-literate.

As a former reporter, I’ve greatly admired Jeff’s commitment to journalism and his stewardship of the Post. All of this makes his backing particularly meaningful. We welcome Jeff to our family of supporters with great gratitude.
