Bokeh Focus relies on the generous donations of our viewers and the support of the foundations that award operating and project grants to us. Some grants may support specific areas of coverage, such as arts in community programs. However, these grants are awarded with the understanding that the funding does not affect which programs we cover, which images we publish or what we report about them.
Our organization retains full authority over editorial content to protect the best journalistic and business interests of our organization. We maintain a firewall between news coverage and image curation decisions and sources of all revenue.
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 donors the rights to assign, review or edit content.
We will make public all donors who give $5,000 or more per year (see below). As a nonprofit, we will not accept donations from anonymous sources, government entities, political parties, elected officials or candidates actively seeking public office. We will not accept donations from sources who present a conflict of interest with our work or compromise our independence.
