Shelterforce is made possible by the generous support from:


Wells Fargo & Company is a diversified, community-based financial services company with $1.9 trillion in assets. Wells Fargo’s vision is to satisfy our customers’ financial needs and help them succeed financially. We use our resources and expertise to address complex societal issues and pave a path to stability and financial success for the underserved.



The Kresge Foundation is a $3.6 billion private, national foundation that works to expand opportunities in America’s cities through grantmaking and social investing in arts and culture, education, environment, health, human services, and community development in Detroit. The foundation, in collaboration with our nonprofit, public, private, and philanthropic partners, helps create pathways for low-income people to improve their life circumstances                                   and join the economic mainstream.

Kaiser Permanente

Kaiser Permanente is a leader in identifying, measuring, and eliminating disparities in health and health care. We do this by targeting resources to areas of need in the communities we serve, investing in important and needed research into the entire construct of disparities, and identifying and implementing strategies and policies that support equity in health nationwide—including universal health coverage.


The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation is the nation’s largest philanthropy dedicated solely to health. Since 1972, the foundation has supported research and programs targeting some of America’s most pressing health issues—from substance abuse to improving access to quality health care, recognizing that no matter the issue, no single organization or sector can change the trajectory of America’s health alone.


The Bank of America Charitable Foundation focuses on building pathways to economic mobility by addressing the issues of workforce development and education, basic needs and community development.




JPMorgan Chase works with community partners to create pathways to opportunity by supporting workforce development, financial capability, small business development and community development in the regions where JPMorgan Chase operates.



Citi Community Development works with nonprofit and public agencies across the country to expand access to financial products and services, build sustainable business solutions, and forge innovative partnerships.



NeighborWorks America creates opportunities for people to live in affordable homes, improve their lives, and strengthen their communities.




The PNC Foundation forms partnerships with community-based nonprofit organizations within the areas PNC serves in order to enhance educational opportunities for children, particularly underserved pre-K children, and to promote the growth of communities through economic development initiatives.

Editorial Independence Policy

We subscribe to standards of editorial independence adopted by the Institute for Nonprofit News:

Shelterforce retains full authority over editorial content to protect the best journalistic and business interests of Shelterforce. We maintain a firewall between news coverage decisions and sources of all revenue. Acceptance of financial support does not constitute implied or actual endorsement of donors or their products, services or opinions.

We accept gifts, grants, and sponsorships from individuals and organizations for the general support of our activities, but our news judgments are made independently and not on the basis of donor support.

Shelterforce accepts donations to support the coverage of particular topics, but Shelterforce maintains editorial control of the coverage. We do not give supporters the rights to review or influence our editorial content, nor to distribute editorial content unauthorized.

Shelterforce will make public all donors who give a total of $1,000 or more per year. We will accept anonymous donations for general support only if it is clear that sufficient safeguards have been put into place that the expenditure of that donation is made independently by Shelterforce and in compliance with INN’s membership standards.
