Journalism Foundation (IJF) was founded in 1991 by James L. Greenfield, a member of The
New York Times' editorial board, to help fellow journalists in post-Communist countries
upgrade their reporting skills, technology and business practices. He was joined by Don
Wilson, a former Vice President of Time Inc., who is currently a publisher of a newspaper
in New Jersey.

first non-profit groups following the collapse of Communism to have a continuing presence
in Eastern and Central Europe.
IJF's first initiative was to establish the Center for Independent Journalism in
Prague, before Czechoslovakia was divided into two republics, making us one of the first
non-profit groups following the collapse of Communism to have a continuing presence in
Eastern and Central Europe. Building on the success of the Prague Center, which closed in
2001, IJF launched Centers for Independent Journalism in Bratislava, Slovakia (1993),
Bucharest, Romania (1994), Budapest, and Hungary (1995) and Phnom Penh, Cambodia (2001).
