Support our mission to hold government accountable through taxpayer-focused journalism.

As a 501 (c) 3 organization, we rely on the generosity of individuals like you to fund our high-quality news and information that allows readers all across the United States to access our work.

State by state, we’re simply giving the taxpayers truthful information about their state government while legislation is being discussed and while they still have time to do something about it.

Franklin News Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit media company that relies on public support of our mission to fund high-quality news and information that allows readers all across the United States to access our work. Franklin News Foundation adheres to charitable-giving law and believes in the landmark 1958 NAACP ruling that protected anonymity for those who give charitably as an extension of free speech. A tax-deductible charitable gift to Franklin ensures that our journalists may continue to provide critical news with a taxpayer sensibility that simplifies the complex while shining a light on the corners of government. The Franklin News Foundation is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, and contributions are tax-deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law.
