Donor acceptance policy

CIR accepts gifts and grants to support our general operations, coverage of specific topics determined by our editorial staff and special projects. All editorial decisions are made independently; donors receive no preferential coverage and do not influence the direction or findings of our reporting.

We do not accept donations from government entities, political parties, elected officials or candidates actively seeking public office, nor do we accept donations from sources who our board of directors deem could present a conflict of interest with our work or compromise our editorial independence.
