Texas Watchdog is grateful for our many donors -- large and small -- who allowed us to do award-winning, government accountability journalism for nearly five years.
We appreciate the support of The Sam Adams Alliance, which funded Texas Watchdog's start-up phase. This Chicago-based group took on government transparency as a major focus, launching projects such as ballotpedia.org, judgepedia.org and sunshinereview.org. (These projects are now independent.)
Texas Watchdog has, in the past, received support from the Franklin Center for Government Integrity and thank them for their contribution. And we have gotten support via our reporter/blogger/citizen-journalist training program. We teach journalism skills: crafting a public records request, effective interviewing, using and presenting multimedia, and other skills. Past clients include the Franklin Center for Government and Public Integrity, Civitas and Missouri News Horizon.
Texas Watchdog is also grateful for the generous support of the Robert Morris Fund of the Greater Houston Community Foundation, which provided funding for us in 2010 and 2011.
In addition, we are grateful for many individual donors who have contributed to Texas Watchdog, as well as to foundations and groups such as the Philip L. Graham Fund, Investigative Reporters & Editors and the Rockefeller Brothers Fund which provided Texas Watchdog staffers with scholarships and travel related to professional development and networking.
In 2017 we have re-launched and are grateful for any support our readers show!
