Shelterforce is made possible by the generous support from:

Wells Fargo is a community-based financial services company with a vision to satisfy its customers’ financial needs and help them succeed financially. The Wells Fargo Foundation launched a philanthropic strategy in 2019 anchored on housing affordability solutions, small business and financial health. This includes a $1 billion philanthropic commitment to address housing affordability solutions by 2025.


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.


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.



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.
