NAMLE believes that media literacy education is strengthened by the involvement of a broad coalition of people and groups. As a 501C3 nonprofit, NAMLE is able to receive funding from a variety of sources, including foundations, government agencies, individuals and corporations. Recognizing the need for both credibility and independence as an organization, NAMLE takes care to ensure that funders understand the separation between funding support and editorial input. Funders may not require changes to NAMLE content, policies, professional development, media literacy activities or any other NAMLE work in exchange for funding. Funders may provide input in an advisory capacity only. It is our hope that funders are supportive of the kind of work NAMLE does and that their funding is meant as a statement of that support. NAMLE seeks funding to support its strategic goals, not the goals of a particular corporate funder. To review NAMLE’s policies in full, please click here.
