A learn-to-program blog written with journalists in mind
"The Investigative News Network (INN) has received approval of non-profit 501(c)(3) status from the IRS, allowing the organization to directly receive grants from foundations and donations from individuals and continue its mission of supporting investigative journalism. The approval was granted last week on Friday, March 16, 19 months after INN applied for 501(c)(3) status and following numerous discussions with the IRS over INN’s mission and goals. Over the past two years, the IRS has, in general, increased its scrutiny of journalism-related applicants. “We are delighted with the IRS ruling, which reflects the intent of INN to provide public service journalism to citizens everywhere and to hold government and business accountable through nonpartisan reporting,” said Brant Houston, chair of INN’s board of directors and one of the co-founders of INN."
This is indeed, good news.
