Page 67 of 67 The HSPA Foundation HSPA Foundation Mission Statement The Hoosier State Press Association Foundation believes free speech and a free press benefit all citizens and help preserve constitutional rights. Our society faces challenges to the concepts of open government and the marketplace of ideas necessary for democracy to flourish. The HSPA Foundation exists to foster public understanding of the role of a free press in society, to increase public literacy, to enhance the ability of Indiana newspapers to fully educate and inform the public, and to defend the principles of the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. The educational opportunities, recognition of excellence in journalism and outside grants to advance awareness of the First Amendment all depend on available funding for the year. Although much of our revenue comes from interest on the Foundation's investment account, programs still depend heavily on member newspapers' donations. We also encourage individuals to donate a personal gift or one remembering or honoring someone special.
