Donors and Financials

The Signals Network (TSN) works with whistleblowers to hold power to account, and we believe that transparency of our operations and financials is just as important.

Ethical fundraising allows us to maintain full independence from any and all governments, companies, political ideologies, economic interests and religious beliefs.

TSN reserves the right to refuse, return, or forgo donations from individuals or institutions if we determine that such funds might undermine TSN’s credibility, independence, or reputation.
