Truth delivered daily

Carolina Public Press is committed to ethical, nonpartisan reporting on the important issues facing our communities. Make us your source for trusted news in North Carolina.

As a nonprofit newsroom, we rely on the generosity of individuals, foundations and businesses to fund our in-depth and investigative reporting in the public interest. A unique mix of philanthropy, corporate sponsorship and earned revenue makes our important work sustainable over time. Thanks to support from around the state and across the nation, we have raised more than $620,000 in 2020 – double of that of 2019 – to fund our nonpartisan journalism. We’ve achieved this fundraising success without sacrificing a reputation for fairness and transparency. We continue to maintain the highest standards of financial disclosure in the industry, including publishing online lists of every individual, foundation or corporate entity that supports us.
