SUPPORT OUR JOURNALISM

Your investment helps us hire more reporters and keeps our site free and accessible to all.
THE CULTURE 500

Help us prove that arts and culture journalism is desired, supported and sustainable in Orange County.

The first 500 donations of any size will be listed on our website in perpetuity as founding donors to Culture OC —

The Culture 500.

RECURRING donation

The biggest way donors can help is to commit to a recurring monthly donation. This offers vital stability to our small team, and helps donors spread their gift out across the calendar year.

ONE-TIME donation

We welcome one-time donations of any size (we’re small, so every bit matters).

To donate by check: Make your check payable to OneOC

Culture OC is a fiscally sponsored project of OneOC – a registered 501(c)(3) public charity. Your gift is deeply appreciated and tax deductible as a charitable contribution to the fullest extent allowed by law. The 501(c)(3) number is 95-2021700.

MATCHING DONATIONs

Make your gift go even further! Many employers match dollar-for-dollar charitable gifts their employees make – some will double or even triple-match an employee’s donation. Check with your employer to see if they have a charitable matching program.

Commitment

Upholding Unbiased Journalism:

Culture OC's Pledge to Editorial Integrity

Editorial Independence policy

We subscribe to standards of editorial independence and transparency adopted by the Institute for Nonprofit News.

 

Culture OC 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 all sources of revenue. Acceptance of financial support does not constitute implied or actual endorsement of donors or their products, services or opinions.

 

We accept gifts, grants, advertisements 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.

 

Culture OC 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.

 

Culture OC will make public all donors who give a total of $5,000 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.

CORRECTIONS policy

 

Culture OC is committed to correcting misinformation when identified and telling readers when an error has been made, the magnitude of the error and the correct information, as quickly as possible. This commitment and transparency is applicable to small errors as well as large, across all Culture OC content and products.
