At SembraMedia, we are thankful for the many organizations that have supported our work, including the International Center for Journalists, the Institute for Nonprofit News, Luminate Group, Omidyar Network, Google News Initiative, The Lenfest Institute, The Cook Family Foundation, the Meta Journalism Project, the National Endowment for Democracy, the Knight Center for Journalism in the Americas, and numerous individual donors, including Mark and Linda Jenkins, Patricia Torres-Burd, Ariadna Coto, David LaFontaine, and Janine Warner.

WHAT INSPIRES US

While we focus on projects in Spanish in Latin America, the U.S., Canada and Spain, we are always delighted when our work encourages new projects anywhere in the world.

In 2022 we launched Project Oasis, a new research study on the sustainability of digital native media in 43 countries in Europe. Our goal is to produce an interactive media directory and publish a final report by early 2023. Keep on touch!
