Donor Transparency Policy 

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, organziations 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 $1,000 or more per year. As a nonprofit, we will not accept donations from anonymous sources, government entities, political parties, elected officials or candidates actively seeking public office.  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.
