A well-informed public is vital to democracy.

The Front Page Foundation has a mission to protect First Amendment rights and empower those working and studying in the journalism field to discover and implement better ways to inform the public.

Partnering with the East Tennessee Society of Professional Journalists, Front Page Foundation raises funds to provide scholarships, educational programs, guest speakers, panels, forums, and more. Together, our organizations strive to educate students and professional journalists on the ever-changing world of news across a variety of platforms including digital and print. 

We consider journalism ethics, diversity, freedom of information, open records and meetings, and government transparency to be the areas our foundation considers essential for a functioning and thriving democracy. 

Our goal is to support programs that educate the providers and consumers of news media on vital issues.
