Donors

The Southern Investigative Reporting Foundation is committed to 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 their 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 between $200 and $2,500 may request anonymity; those giving over $2,500 cannot. We do not name donors of less than $200.*Our policy is to disclose the person initiating an institutional gift. The foundation will not accept gifts connected to a specific project or a desired outcome.

The amounts below represent 2019 donations through December 28. Figures are cumulative and are continuously updated.
