CitizenJoe is a 501c3 (that means we have the IRS's nonprofit stamp of approval), that is supported solely by donations from individuals who believe in this whole multi-partisan, fact-based, open dialogue thing. A couple of corporations have also generously kicked in in-kind donations (as liquor and product sponsors for our events and for free advertising on the web). While we're looking for seed funding from foundations, we haven't snagged any yet.

While we have received hundreds of donations from friends and supporters - to whom cJ is eternally grateful - there are a few who deserve special acknowledgment

the fine print

If, by the way, you're looking for our filing info, our "official" name is "The Informed Citizen" and our EIN is 043768533. You won't find much, though, since our budget has never cracked $25,000 a year (when you have to start filing your annual 990's with the IRS) - but we hope that'll change soon!
