DOUBLE DOWN on Nonprofit Community Journalism

DOUBLE DOWN on Nonprofit Community Journalism

What’s it mean to “DOUBLE DOWN?” It means you’re all in. You’re committed. And now, it can literally mean doubling your money!

We are excited to announce that The James L. and John S. Knight Foundation has committed to give Madison365 one dollar for each dollar you give, up to $28,000, between now and November 8. Every dollar you give is doubled! 





Why do we need donations?

We exist to carry your voice. We do that for the good of the community. We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. We produce excellent professional community journalism, commentary and analysis on issues, people and organizations that often go ignored in the mainstream press.

We will never charge you to access our reporting. And while we truly appreciate the generous support of many local corporate sponsors and members, we need your support to continue and to grow.

DOUBLE DOWN on us, Madison 365, a non profit platform that uses journalism to build community, seek lasting solutions and highlight Greater Madison’s emerging change agents and leaders of color.

To make the most of this opportunity, we need you! If you feel that Madison365 has uplifted, inspired or encouraged the many voices of our community, please consider making a contribution.





And to say thanks, we have gear!

$25 donation: 5×7 Madison365 Decal
$50 donation: Madison365 stainless steel water bottle
$100 donation: Madison365 T-shirt

Help us make the most of this opportunity — help us DOUBLE DOWN on our community!

Donor Transparency Policy

We are committed to transparency in every aspect of funding our organization.

Accepting financial support does not mean we endorse donors or their products, services or opinions.

We accept gifts, grants and sponsorships from individuals, organizations and foundations to help with our general operations, coverage of specific topics, and special projects. Our news judgments are made independently – not based on or influenced by donors. We do not give supporters the rights to assign, review or edit content.

We will make public all donors who give $1000 or more per year (see below). As a nonprofit, we will avoid accepting donations from anonymous sources, and we will not accept donations from government entities, political parties, elected officials or candidates actively seeking public office. We will not accept donations from sources who, deemed by our board of directors, present a conflict of interest with our work or compromise our independence.
