The sources of our funds
We do not want any money from questionable sources. Politikon will be funded exclusively through donations from non-profit foundations, organizations for the advancement of scholarship, universities and other academic institutions, providers of political education, and individual citizens.
We define donations as voluntary monetary, material, or service contributions that are made without any expectation of a quid pro quo. The donors act solely out of altruistic motives. We accept donations only if Politikon’s independence is ensured. Should it become apparent that donors are engaged in activities that are incompatible with our Ethics Code, we will return their contributions.
We will publish the names of all our supporters and the nature of their support or the amount of their donation. That way, we create the necessary transparency to make our editorial independence verifiable.
