Financial Transparency and Donor Acceptance Policy

We are committed to transparency in every aspect of funding our organization. 

We accept gifts, grants and sponsorships from individuals, corporations, organizations and foundations to help with our general operations, editorial beats and special projects. As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that operates as a public trust, we do not pay certain taxes. We may receive funds from government programs offered to nonprofits or similar businesses. (In 2020, Reveal received a forgivable loan from the Small Business Administration’s Paycheck Protection Program.)

Our journalism judgments are made independently – not based on or influenced by donors or any revenue source. We do not give supporters the rights to assign, review or edit content.

We will accept anonymous donations without restrictions only if they adhere to all the guidelines laid out in this statement. 

We make public through our IRS Form 990 Schedule B all revenue sources and donors who give $5,000 or more per year. We will not accept donations from sources who – deemed by our board of directors – present a conflict of interest with our work, mission and values or compromise our independence.
