The Foundation for Financial Journalism is committed to following the highest standards of nonprofit governance. To that end, our disclosures exceed 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 $2,500 may request anonymity; anyone contributing more than $2,500 cannot. We do not name 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 that are tied to a specific project or a desired outcome.
