Who is CIMA?

Close to $160,000 has been raised through the just-completed Chicago Independent Media Alliance (CIMA) fundraiser, a first-of-its-kind benefit for more than 40 local, independent media in Chicago. CIMA raised more than $96,000 from over 1,000 individual donors to the campaign, plus an additional $60,000 in matching funds from foundations including the Robert R. McCormick Foundation, The Joyce Foundation, the Joseph & Bessie Feinberg Foundation, the Lloyd A. Fry Foundation, and two anonymous foundations. The Crossroads Fund administered the matching funds.

CIMA has helped nearly 40 different local news agencies in Chicago.
