The California Press Foundation is both a membership organization and a 501(c)(3) fiscal organization. Your membership and your additional contribution both secure current programs and support the expansion of the Cal Press mission.

MEMBER DUES ARE $50 PER YEAR and are by individual, not company.

Dues support the ever more crucial Cal Press mission:
  • To be the guardian of the history and traditions of California journalism;
  • To recognize and honor contemporary achievements;
  • To assure the future and integrity of California journalism through education and professional support; and
  • To provide a social and educational forum for its members.
OF YOUR $50 DUES, $20 FUNDS GRANTS that benefit student journalism programs in California.

Cal Press also is a sustaining member of the First Amendment Coalition and is active in other journalism support projects.

The association’s annual meeting the first Friday of December in San Francisco features entertaining and educational programming and the presentation of several prestigious awards.
