SUPPORTING THE NEXT GENERATION OF YOUNG MINDS
One of the long-time cornerstones of The Arizona Republic Community Relations programs is Media In Education. We believe it’s one of our most important responsibilities to be an educational resource, providing dynamic, engaging content, relevant to readers of all ages. And we do so by connecting students, teachers and their parents to the people, places, and events that shape their lives through a multi-pronged approach for support.

The Arizona Republic wants to help your school raise money through this innovative, cause-marketing fundraiser. We provide a turn-key fundraising kit complete with a customized Web link, brochures, and order forms for your school or organization to sell subscriptions to The Arizona Republic. You’ll be encouraging at home reading with your students and families while connecting them to the stories of our community both locally and globally.
Each subscription includes a full print edition as well as unlimited access to azcentral.com, news and sports apps, the daily e-Edition, and exclusive Insider perks. Plus it’s a great way to raise much needed funds to support your school programs. You can earn between $25 to $15 per subscription sold and the potential is limitless! It all adds up – With just 100 students getting 1 subscription, you can raise $2,500!
Interested in bringing a press perspective to your classroom? Or giving your students a glimpse into the journalism and communications fields? Our journalists regularly visit middle and high school classes to talk about their work, from the immigration crisis to pension reform to the scandal in the Veterans hospitals. We engage in a variety of different classes, including social studies, history, geography, journalism, and others. Speakers are not always available, but we will make every effort to assist you.
Donated MIE funds support a fellowship for students at Arizona State University's Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication in honor of Republic reporter Don Bolles, who was mortally wounded in a car explosion in 1976. In 2016, the Cronkite School received a gift from The Republic/azcentral.com that will fund the participation of a student each year in the Carnegie-Knight News21 investigative reporting initiative. The News21 program brings together the country's top journalism students each year to create an investigative, multimedia reporting project on an issue of national significance.
And beginning in 2017, the MIE program will also sponsor a media innovation summer camp for high school students. The camp will encourage students to think of new ways of creating and distributing news content while upholding the industry's highest standards.
All Media in Education programs expenses are underwritten by Republic Media and azcentral.com and is supported by our generous subscribers taking part in our Vacation Donation program. When stopping their subscription temporarily for a vacation, these subscribers donate the credit for their stopped newspapers to Media in Education programs.
Donations may be made at any time of the year, whether school is in session or not, because resources are available to teachers throughout the year. For more information on how you can participate in the Vacation Donation Program, please call (602) 444-1000, or (800) 332-6733 if you live outside the Phoenix area.
Through this program, The Arizona Republic/azcentral.com and our parent corporation, Gannett Co., Inc., provide access to azcentral.com and/or USAToday.com at no cost. We hope educators and students can use the sites to promote current events discussions and critical thinking in the classroom.
We understand that sometimes, it's just is nice to hold and read a printed newspaper. The Arizona Republic is happy to provide at no cost, a limited number of the Sunday print edition through a classroom subscription for the school year. Requests are accepted on a first come, first saved basis within our delivery zones until all funds are expended.
