About us

Bay City News Foundation serves the greater San Francisco Bay Area.

We are backed by charitable donations from contributors who care about local news, a free press, democratic values and an informed citizenry.

We target geographic and topical news deserts. We collaborate with other media. We experiment with technology.

We work with journalism schools to train the next generation of reporters and provide paid internships for promising new journalists.

Some of our stories get cross-published on the affiliated Bay City News regional newswire, reaching as many as 9 million people. Help us do more with a donation today.
