The objectives of the Journalism Committee are to make contributions to the journalism programs or projects which improve the quality of journalism in all of its forms, and to defend freedom of the press anywhere in the world.

To improve the quality of journalism in all of its forms, the foundation has made modest grants to American journalism schools, investigative journalism projects, and new news websites for local communities and state-wide investigative reporting.

To defend freedom of the press anywhere in the world, the foundation has made modest grants to international press freedom groups, and organizations that protect and defend journalists under threat in civil wars and totalitarian states.
