MinnPost says it’s reducing reliance on foundation funding


MinnPost reports that site visits are up, and so is revenue: “Revenue from individual and corporate donors and from MinnRoast rose a whopping 69%, to $815,252. .. The 2011 grant total is lower — in dollars and percentage of revenues — than the $466,350 received in 2010. This fits with our long-range plan to reduce reliance on foundation dollars.” || Related: Half of ProPublica’s revenue in 2011 came from sources other than Sandler Foundation (Poynter) | The Texas Tribune is exceeding its fundraising expectations (Adweek)
