Transparency & Financial Support

The Mat-Su Sentinel is committed to transparency in all aspects of our organization's funding.

Accepting financial support does not mean we endorse the donors or their products, services or opinions.

We accept gifts, grants and sponsorships from individuals, organizations and foundations to support our general operations, issue coverage and special projects. As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization operating as a public trust under the fiscal sponsorship of the Tiny News Collective, we do not pay certain taxes. We may receive funding from standard government programs offered to nonprofits or similar businesses.

Our news judgments are made independently - not based on or influenced by donors or any revenue stream. We do not give supporters the right to assign, review or edit content.

We disclose all corporate and philanthropic revenue sources. We disclose by name individual donors who give $5,000 or more annually. Find those here. As a nonprofit news organization, we do not accept donations from anonymous sources, government agencies, political parties, elected officials or candidates for public office. We will not accept donations from sources that our board of directors determines present a conflict of interest with our work or compromise our independence.
