CoTMF awarded official non-profit status
The Capital of Texas Media Foundation, the parent organization of the Austin Monitor, announced late Friday that it had been awarded 501(c)3 tax-exempt status by the Internal Revenue Service. CoTMF purchased the then-In Fact Daily from the Austin American-Statesman in October 2013. It had been operating under the fiscal sponsorship of the Online Journalism Project. Everyone at CoTMF is grateful for the support of that organization, as well as the efforts of Hughes, Vanderburg, Williams, & Bartoletti, who prepared the foundation’s application.
