WHQR Awarded Fellowship To Support Nonprofit Coverage

By Staff Reports, posted Mar 21, 2023
WHQR is one of four news organizations awarded a fellowship to support coverage of philanthropy and nonprofit accountability by the Chronicle of Philanthropy, according to a news release.
"From equity in nonprofit compensation to philanthropy’s part in addressing growing homelessness, the new recipients of the Chronicle of Philanthropy’s (CoP’s) Philanthropy & Nonprofit Accountability Fellowship will shed light on the role of nonprofits, foundations, and others involved in advancing the social good, one of the most under-covered — but crucial — sectors of American life," the release stated.

WHQR will focus in particular on covering the New Hanover Community Endowment, formed by the multi-billion-dollar sale of New Hanover Regional Medical Center to Novant Health in 2021.
WHQR will receive a $15,000 stipend to subsidize the work of editors and reporters on projects for WHQR and for publication in the Chronicle. Teams will develop coverage that will help local residents, policymakers, donors, and volunteers better understand how nonprofits work and what could help them do even more to solve problems.

 "WHQR will be given access to the tools and training they need to report powerful stories and will receive coaching from national experts in the nonprofit world, as well as from editors and reporters who are part of a philanthropy partnership among CoP, the Associated Press, and the Conversation, funded by the Lilly Endowment," the release staetd.
Other 2023 fellowship recipients include The Arizona Republic, Boston Business Journal and The Post and Courier of Charleston, South Carolina.
“It is inspiring to see the breadth, creativity, and commitment from these news outlets to provide in-depth coverage of the social sector,” said Stacy Palmer, CoP executive editor, in the release. “We hope these fellowships support reporting and analysis that can help the public better understand how philanthropy and nonprofits contribute to addressing social challenges as well as what works and what does not.”
