OpenMedia aims to be transparent about its funding and supporters.

In order to ensure that our organization remains community-driven, we adhere to these core policies on funding:

  • At least 50% of our funding must be from grassroots donors. These gifts are small contributions from individuals, averaging $9/month and $24 one-time.
  • We aim to have no non-grassroots category of financial support account for more than 20% of revenue overall.   
  • We aim to ensure that no single source of funding comprises more than 15% of our revenue in a given financial year.
  • Members of our board are not permitted to account for more than 5% of overall funding to OpenMedia.

These values ensure that no single organization or set of aligned funders are permitted to unduly influence our work. These values apply to organizations, foundations, philanthropies, businesses, and government entities.
