The Austin Bulldog has no hidden agendas, no invisible people behind the curtain to influence what we do or do not investigate or how our coverage may have been influenced. To that end, the names of all contributors are gratefully acknowledged and permanently recognized on this website. While contributors may request anonymity, we much prefer to list our donors by name so that there can be no question of the source of funds that make our work possible.

We wish to thank the following foundations and individuals for their generous contributions to support our independent investigative reporting the public interest. To facilitate inspection, donors are listed alphabetically by last name. The names of sustaining donors, who are currently making regular monthly contributions, are marked in bold green type.
