We rely on your support

Cardinal News is a 501c3 tax-exempt nonprofit built on the public broadcasting model and relies solely on donations and grants from individuals, corporations and foundations.

As an independent news organization we maintain an impenetrable firewall between donors and our newsroom. We are strict practitioners of journalistic standards, and believe in full transparency. We do not accept anonymous gifts or any that appear to have the slightest of strings attached. Whenever we write about a donor who has contributed $5,000 or more, we disclose this in the story.

You can donate below, or by mailing checks to Cardinal News, P.O. Box 4455, Roanoke, Va. 24015.

To make a stock donation, please contact luanne@cardinalnews.org.

We publish the names and levels of all donors. We do so both to acknowledge and honor their commitment to quality journalism, and so that everyone knows who is supporting us. This list is updated frequently.
