Support independent journalism for Columbus

As a nonprofit, we rely on donations from invested residents to keep producing quality, investigative journalism.

We always want to keep our coverage free and open to the public, so no one is barred from accessing critical information about their lives based on income. But that means we need help from those who can invest in ensuring we know exactly what is going on in this city we all call home. Your generous, tax-deductible donation of any amount is highly appreciated.

NOTE: Grey Matter Media is fiscally sponsored by the Institute for Nonprofit News and as such, INN accepts donations via PayPal on our behalf. 

Donor Transparency Policy

Grey Matter Media and it’s programs subscribe to the donor transparency policy created by the Institute for Nonprofit News:

We are committed to transparency in every aspect of funding our organization.

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

We accept gifts, grants and sponsorships from individuals, organizations and foundations to help with our general operations, coverage of specific topics, and special projects. Our news judgments are made independently – not based on or influenced by donors. We do not give supporters the rights to assign, review or edit content.

We will make public all donors who give $1000 or more per year. As a nonprofit, we will not accept donations from anonymous sources, government entities, political parties, elected officials or candidates actively seeking public office. We will not accept donations from sources who, deemed by our board of directors, present a conflict of interest with our work or compromise our independence.
