We’re proud to be a #GivingTuesdayCa partner!
This Giving Tuesday we hope you will consider a donation to help continue to promote journalism in Canada through the Martin Wise Goodman Canadian Nieman Fellowship.
The Martin Wise Goodman Canadian Nieman Fellowship is a charitable foundation in memory of Martin Wise Goodman, late president of Toronto Star Newspapers to promote distinct Canadian journalism. Since 1983 the Canadian Nieman fellowship has sent 24 Canadian journalists to the Nieman Foundation for Journalism at Harvard for a year of study, innovation and experimentation.
Martin Goodman was one of Canada's most influential newspapermen. He started as a reporter at 23, later becoming managing editor of the Toronto star and ultimately its president before his untimely death at 46. He saw his contribution to journalism not as personal so much as on behalf of the profession.
In 1961, Martin was awarded a Canadian Nieman Fellowship, giving him a rare opportunity to delve into informal studies as well as to participate in the exceptional Nieman seminar program. Of his year he said "spending a year at Harvard must be the best single thing that could happen to any newspaperman"
