Reporting on complex health policy issues is no easy task. And to make sure we bring you the best possible information, in the clearest possible way we spend weeks, sometimes months reporting on issues from mental and behavioral health, to drug prices to gaps in the Affordable Care Act. 

When you support Tradeoffs, you are part of making our ambitious storytelling, relentless fact finding and rigorous research possible. Learn more about our impact in 2022.

Join our community of supporters today and help us continue to drive smarter and more honest conversations about health policy. 

And if supporting Tradeoffs, isn’t enough of an incentive, here are a few more reasons why you should donate before December 31, 2022: 

  • All donations up to $1,000 will be tripled! That means if you donate $1,000, we’ll receive $3,000, thanks to the Newsmatch program and a grant from the Loud Hound Foundation. For you economists out there, that’s some high-value donating!
  • And if you become a monthly donor, the yearly amount of your donation will be matched. 
  • All donors will receive a limited edition Tradeoffs hat.

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 $5,000 or more per year. 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.
