Support Us

WisconsinEye provides an extraordinary opportunity to contribute to an important new chapter in the history of our state's government and public life. Through your financial support of WisconsinEye, you can make an investment in the future of our state.

WisconsinEye is unique among the nearly two dozen state government channels now operating nationally in that we are both privately financed and editorially independent. We are a private, not-for-profit enterprise operating as a 501(c)(3) public charity. In accordance with our mission as an unbiased, nonpartisan resource for information and education, we receive no state funding nor rely on any single source of financial support.

Our donor community of individuals, corporations, organizations, and foundations has funded WisconsinEye's start-up. Achieving our goal of delivering programming about the full range of civic activity across Wisconsin will require support for additional capital and operating costs.

Your support of WisconsinEye can take advantage of various methods that allow you to increase the tax advantages of your gift. These can include cash gifts, cash pledges, securities, planned gifts, and bequests. We welcome inquiries about funding to support specific, non-Capitol public affairs programming that is within our mission.

Learn about how we are funded by watching our short video, "Who Pays for WisconsinEye?"
