RNA was founded in 1949 to advance the professional standards of religion reporting in the mainstream media and to create a support network for religion reporters. The Association's primary projects include an annual conference, contests for religion reporting, membership resources and mentoring.
In 1999, RNA created an educational and charitable arm, the Religion Newswriters Foundation. Since its founding the RNF has received millions of dollars in grants to create tools and training for religion reporters, including our website, ReligionLink, the Lilly Scholarships in Religion Program, a religion stylebook and primer, webinars (online seminars) and regional training events, among others.
