Funded by the Community. For the Community.

Frustrated by the gutting of local journalism in Memphis, a group of seasoned journalists, media professionals and concerned citizens gathered to discuss the need for strong, locally focused and locally produced daily news. After much research and outreach to local and national media professionals and thought leaders, Memphis Fourth Estate Inc. was formed. A 501(C)3 nonprofit, Memphis Fourth Estate owns and operates The Daily Memphian; however, the newsroom operates independently of Memphis Fourth Estate's influence and will not know donor names or pledges.

Help us keep local journalism thriving in Memphis. Join the cause and become a Memphis Fourth Estate donor. Click here to donate.
