Investing in MDIF

Investing in MDIF

Investing in MDIF’s work enables us to provide the financing that independent news companies need to build financially robust businesses around quality news, information and debate. Presented below are some investment options that are currently available.

Free Press Investment Notes

Free Press Investment Notes® (FPIN) let social investors in the US invest in independent news businesses in emerging democracies through MDIF. Investors choose their interest rate (up to 3%) and the term of investment (from 1 to 10 years) – the lower the interest rate and the longer the term, the more it helps MDIF provide the support that news outlets need to make the most of their financing. There is no limit on the amount that can be invested, while investments start at as little as $1,000. FPIN are available in many US states.
