Donor Transparency Policy

  WNIN, Tri-State Public Media is committed to transparency in funding our organization.  

WNIN solicits memberships, gifts, grants and sponsorships from individuals, organizations and foundations. The funding we receive is used for general operations, coverage of specific topics and special projects.

Accepting a donation does not mean we endorse a product or service. We do not make news decisions based on, or influenced by, donors. Our news judgements are made independently. We do not give supporters the rights to assign, review or edit our content.

We accept gifts, grants and sponsorships from individuals, organziations 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. 

As a nonprofit, all donations are accepted and handled as required by law and FCC regulations. We will not accept donations from sources who present a conflict of interest with our work or compromise our independence.
