We believe financial transparency is key to running a trustworthy, nonpartisan news source. Financial support does not influence news coverage. We also do not allow donations from certain groups, including political parties and elected officials. Read more about our financial transparency rules.

Like many small startup nonprofits, the Mat-Su Sentinel operates as a fiscal sponsor under the umbrella of a larger nonprofit’s 501c3 status. The Mat-Su Sentinel receives fiscal sponsorship from the Tiny News Collective. Fiscal sponsorship provides benefit that include affordable administrative support around taxes and other required filings.
