How we protect our editorial independence

Floodlight is a member of the Institute for Nonprofit News and subscribes to its standards of editorial independence and financial transparency. We retain full authority over editorial content:

  • Our news judgments are made independently and not on the basis of donor support.
  • We do not accept charitable donations sources who present a conflict of interest with our work or compromise our independence.
  • Floodlight may consider donations to support the coverage of particular topics, but our organization maintains editorial control of the coverage. 
  • Floodlight will make public all donors who give a total of $5,000 or more per year.
