Important: please confirm that you've read and understand the INN membership standards.
INN members share a commitment to transparency and by becoming members, agree to publish policies regarding fundraising, donations and conflict-of-interest on their websites. These must specify what kind of funding they will and won’t accept.
Members must publish their IRS 990 forms, or their fiscal sponsor’s 990, or the equivalent budget and salary information on their websites.
Members should publish the names of all individual and organizational donors who have contributed $5,000 or more to the organization or project on their websites.
Members should post an editorial independence policy on their web sites.
INN encourages all members to adopt, publicize and share with donors and other relevant partners their policies on editorial independence, conflicts of interest, ethics and privacy. Members also are invited to adopt INN's standards of editorial independence and share that with donors. You can find the editorial independence and samples of these other types of policies on our Legal Resources page.
