Funding for States Newsroom comes from individual contributions and institutional grants. We also encourage donors to contact their employers about the opportunity for matching gifts.  Our supporters’ generosity allows us to provide high quality, nonpartisan reporting that connects people to state leaders and policies that affect their lives. If you would like to help us shine a light on state governments across the country, please make a tax-deductible contribution today.

Donations to States Newsroom and our affiliates support our journalistic mission but do not influence our editorial direction. We maintain a strict separation between our funding and our journalism. We don’t accept corporate donations or underwriting, nor do we accept donations from foreign governments or anonymous sources.
