good journalism matters

Nebraska needs its stories. We need stories that lift up our victories. Stories that find the truth in our tragedies. Stories that hold the powerful accountable, that defend the vulnerable. We need the kind of journalism that takes time and resources — increasingly scarce in our newsrooms.

The Nebraska Journalism Trust ensures such work will always help sustain The Good Life.

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.
