Support the Institute for Rural Journalism and Community Issues with a year-end donation

The Rural Blog is brought to you by the Institute for Rural Journalism and Community Issues, which helps rural journalists define the public agenda in their communities through strong reporting and commentary, often issues that come at them from far away but have a local impact.

In addition to the blog, the Institute conducts research, holds seminars on issues, makes presentations at other organizations' meetings and maintains a Web site,, that is a resource for rural journalists. For the Institute's annual report for 2008, click here.

The Institute is supported by the University of Kentucky and donors to an endowment that is matched by state funds. Donations to the fund are tax-deductible, and this is the time of year when many folks make such contributions. To make a donation to the Institute, through a secure Web site, click here.
