Our policies

Corrections policy

We strive for accuracy in our journalism. We will promptly correct all errors. Simple typos and misspellings will be corrected without a note. For more substantial errors, we will include the corrections in the following print edition as well as at the bottom of the web story. Please send corrections to theivanhoesol@gmail.

Editorial independence policy

We follow the editorial independence standards adopted by the Institute for Nonprofit News:

Our organization retains full authority over editorial content to protect the best journalistic and business interests of our organization. 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.

Our organization may consider donations to support the coverage of particular topics, but our organization maintains editorial control of the coverage. We will cede no right of review or influence of editorial content, nor of unauthorized distribution of editorial content.

Our organization 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 our organization and in compliance with INN’s Membership Standards.

Donor transparency policy

The Ivanhoe Sol is committed to transparency about how our work is funded. We post every donor above $1,000 on our funders page. To help ensure our independence, we do not accept donations from anonymous sources, people running for office, elected officials or political parties. We will also not accept donations from sources that, as judged by our advisory board, could present conflict of interest or threaten our independence.
