Founders Fund

BirminghamWatch celebrates the founders of Alabama Initiative for Independent Journalism and the vision and legacy of founding Executive Director, Carol Nunnelley, by creating the Founders Fund. We seek investments that will allow BirminghamWatch to deepen its coverage of key issues and increase readership.
