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. Those giving between $200 and $1,000 may request anonymity; those giving over $1,000 cannot. We do not name donors of less than $200.*Our policy is to disclose the person initiating an institutional gift. The foundation won’t accept gifts connected to a specific project or a desired outcome.

*Represents Kingsford Capital Management’s share of a settled class-action litigation, Kaplan vs. S.A.C Advisors that was donated to Southern Investigative Reporting Foundation. Specifically, these funds were due former Kingsford limited partners in 2008 who were unable to be located or otherwise declined to collect them. The donation has nothing to do with Kingsford, its employees or general partner.
