Donors

The Foundation for Financial Journalism is committed to following the highest standards of nonprofit governance. To that end, our disclosures are in line with the Institute for Nonprofit News’ requirements for both member transparency and editorial independence. No donor receives anything of value in return for his or her donation. (Please read this brief primer on how and why our reporting comes first.)

All donors of $200 or more are disclosed by name and locale (when possible). Those giving $200 to $5000 may request anonymity; anyone contributing more than $5,000 cannot. We do not identify donors of sums less than $200. Our policy is to disclose the name of the person who initiated making an institutional gift. The foundation will not accept gifts tied to a specific project or a desired outcome.

The amounts listed below represent donations made in 2020 through Dec. 31. The figures are cumulative and continuously updated.
