$15,000 matching gift in play for contributions to Xana Fund

When you give to SABEW’s Xana Fund to support female business journalists, Xana’s family will match up to $15,000 in donations. The program was just launched at the SABEW20 virtual conference with ten female fellows.

The goal of The Xana Fund is to support mid-career female business journalists looking to redirect and raise their career trajectories.

Xana Antunes was dedicated to making sure that individual journalists had space to develop their skills even as they faced relentless change across the industry. She also was focused on the gender gap in business news, and the need for more structured opportunities for female business journalists to advance their careers.

Antunes, who died of pancreatic cancer earlier this year, held executive editor roles at Quartz, CNBC Digital and Fortune CNN/Money.com. She was editor of Crain’s New York Business and editor of the New York Post. She died in 2020 at age 55 from pancreatic cancer.

Donate online. Select Xana Fund on the pull-down menu. Or send a check to SABEW, P.O. Box 4, Fountainville, PA 18923.

Hurry! Your contribution will be matched dollar for dollar until we meet the $15,000 match.
