Rewarding the Hard Work of Journalism
A range of journalism prizes from Bonnier support the best in journalism in three different countries.
Bonnier Social Impact provides funding for initiatives within Bonnier that serve a social purpose.
Often, projects within Bonnier have a social responsibility aspect beyond the business value for the company. Established in 2016, the Bonnier Social Impact fund aims to fill the breach for projects that fill an important purpose but otherwise might never see the light of day.
“The idea with the fund is to support initiatives that are both positive for our businesses as well as for society, but that might not meet strict market requirements,” says Tomas Franzén, CEO for Bonnier AB.
Financed by Bonnier AB and the Bonnier Family Foundation, the Bonnier Social Impact fund has provided financial support so far for three projects: Filmtegration, with C More; Clio Prep Course for New Immigrants, with Clio Online Sweden; and Bonnier Hoops, with Bonnierförlagen.
