On Monday April 27, 2015 the Media Club of Ottawa will explore the question

Is Crowd-Supported Journalism Viable?



 GoJournalism, a non-profit crowdfunding project, owned and operated by the Algonquin College Journalism program, was founded in 2010.

. Inspired by the successful publically-funded journalism model operating in San Francisco, California at
www.spot.us , GoJournalism enabled the public to commission journalists to report on important and perhaps overlooked topics. Journalists, in turn, could pitch stories they hoped would be funded by the public or mainstream news organizations. All proceeds went toward paying journalists to complete stories.

The Canadian project never really took off. This year director of GoJournalism Joe Banks, who is also coordinator/professor of the Algonquin Journalism, program regretfully discontinued GoJournalism.
