Support DFP

Your donation supports nonprofit journalism that amplifies voices in disinvested Dallas neighborhoods and explores solutions to our city’s systemic inequities.

Donations made until Dec. 31, 2021 will be matched by a consortium of NewsMatch funders. If we raise $14,000, it means a total of $36,500 for nonprofit journalism that serves South Dallas and West Dallas neighbors. Can you help us?

Donor & Financial Transparency

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. As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that operates as a public trust, we do not pay certain taxes. We may receive funds from standard government programs offered to nonprofits or similar businesses.

Our news judgments are made independently — not based on or influenced by donors or any revenue source. We do not give supporters the rights to assign, review or edit content.

We make public all revenue sources and donors who give $5,000 or more per year. As a news nonprofit, we avoid accepting charitable donations from anonymous sources, government entities, political parties, elected officials or candidates 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.
