policies & documents
Transparency is one of the Nebraska Journalism Trust’s core values. As such, we publish key policies, financial reports, and founding documents.
Watchdogging elected officials, keeping tabs on taxpayer dollars and telling Nebraska’s untold stories demands independence. We rely on donations from readers and supporters to report without fear or favor.
The Nebraska Journalism Trust is a 501(c)(3) public charity, and your donation is tax deductible. Please note that we do not accept anonymous or confidential donations of more than $5,000.
