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