The SNPA Foundation was established in 1968 to provide educational programs for members of the Southern Newspaper Publishers Association (SNPA). Since its inception, the SNPA Foundation’s seminars, webinars, literacy programs and Traveling Campus have reached more than 100,000 of newspaper employees.
Newspapers and newspaper corporations, newspaper industry suppliers, state press associations and numerous individuals have contributed millions of dollars to fund the Foundation’s programs.
SNPA and the Inland Press Association merged in 2019 to form a new association, America’s Newspapers. The SNPA Foundation, however, remains as a separate entity. Its ongoing mission is to enhance the prosperity and the future of newspapers and to promote the value of newspapers to the communities that they serve.
The SNPA Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, governed by an elected Board of Trustees.
