Our Mission

The Truth & Transparency Foundation is a nonprofit, investigative newsroom dedicated to empowering the disenfranchised by promoting transparency within religious institutions. We believe that increased transparency results in fewer untruths, less corruption, and less abuse. We aim to achieve our mission by enabling whistleblowers, providing them the technical ability to anonymously submit sensitive documents for use in our own investigative news stories.

 

In our reporting, we focus on the following three areas:

 
 

Finances

We believe that most religious institutions can afford to be more financially transparency. We believe their membership has a right to know where their donations are being used.

Policies

We believe that a religion’s policies that are not widely disseminated leave room to oppress the most vulnerable of their membership.

Abuse

We believe that religious constituents can be better protected from abuse and harassment if non-identifying details surrounding previous incidents and investigations are well known.
