Charter Members of the Capital of Texas Media Foundation
It is our aim to be as transparent as possible in disclosing the individuals and organizations that support our efforts. Below is a list of donors who sponsored the inception of CoTMF and the Monitor. Without their contributions, our mission would go unfulfilled.
Each of these parties received some level of tax deduction for their donations. Some elected to receive certain measurable benefits in return. This was all handled through our fiscal sponsor, the Online Journalism Project, until January 2015 when we received our 501(c)3 status.
For more detail about who each of these individuals and organizations are, click on the links below. These pages will also contain links to any stories we’ve penned about our donors. We invite you to inspect them for bias. Please forward any concerns to our ombudsman (ombudsman (at) austin monitor dot com).

If you have any concerns about what’s here, we invite you to contact our volunteer ombudsman.
