We are committed to transparency in every aspect of funding our organization.
Accepting financial support does not mean we endorse donors or their products, services or opinions.
We accept gifts, grants and sponsorships from individuals, organizations and foundations to help with our general operations, coverage of specific topics, and special projects. Our news judgments are made independently – not based on or influenced by donors. We do not give supporters the rights to assign, review or edit content.
We will make public all donors who give $2,500 or more. As a nonprofit, we will avoid accepting donations from anonymous sources. We will not accept donations from sources who, deemed by our board of directors, present a conflict of interest with our work or compromise our independence.
