We are grateful for the support of so many donors who recognize the need for rigorous, ethical, and factual journalism in Stockton. That is why we recognize all of our donors.

Non-partisanship, editorial independence and transparency are fundamental to our mission. We do not accept contributions from elected officials or candidates for public office. You’ll find a list of all donors who have contributed $1,000 or more to Stocktonia News Service since our inception in 2020.

We are a member of the Institute for Nonprofit News. All Stocktonia News Service donors agree to abide by INN’s Donor Policy on Editorial Independence. It sets expectations for donors to member organizations like Stocktonia to help ensure that there is no influence over the members’ editorial processes.
