DONATE

Your donation supports our news coverage

After four years of delivering independent investigative journalism with a small team, Matter News is looking to the future and focusing on a sustainable approach. Our new approach involves expanding our reporting and coverage, expanding our news access for the community, and expanding our hardworking team. Your donation supports this new approach.

You can also be sure your donation will directly support our news coverage because it will go directly to support Andy’s editor position, so he can keep writing and working with contributors to make the community-oriented news Matter is publishing throughout the campaign.

Editorial Independence Policy

We subscribe to standards of editorial independence adopted by the Institute for Nonprofit News:

Our organization retains full authority over editorial content to protect the best journalistic and business interests of our organization. We maintain a firewall between news coverage decisions and sources of all revenue. Acceptance of financial support does not constitute implied or actual endorsement of donors or their products, services or opinions.

We accept gifts, grants and sponsorships from individuals and organizations for the general support of our activities, but our news judgments are made independently and not on the basis of donor support.

Our organization may consider donations to support the coverage of particular topics, but our organization maintains editorial control of the coverage. We will cede no right of review or influence of editorial content, nor of unauthorized distribution of editorial content.

Our organization will make public all donors who give a total of $5,000 or more per year. We will accept anonymous donations for general support only if it is clear that sufficient safeguards have been put into place that the expenditure of that donation is made independently by our organization and in compliance with INN's Membership Standards.
