Press FAQ

Below is a list of frequently asked questions meant to be utilized by authors and journalists when citing and describing the Truth & Transparency Foundation (TTF):

How do I reference your publication?

The publication carries the same name as the organization. Upon first reference, the full name is preferred: “the Truth & Transparency Foundation”. In subsequent references, it may be shortened to “the TTF”.

How do I describe your publication?

When describing the TTF and its mission, please feel free to reference and quote the About and Mission pages.

A preferred example follows:

“. . . the Truth & Transparency Foundation (TTF), a nonprofit newsroom dedicated to promoting transparency within religious institutions, . . . ”

What about MormonLeaks and FaithLeaks?

The TTF previously published documents, and accompanying press releases, under the names MormonLeaks and FaithLeaks. In January 2019, the TTF began publishing investigative pieces under its name and ceased the publication of simple press releases on the MormonLeaks and FaithLeaks websites.

The TTF still hosts an anonymous submission portal, SecureDrop, in order to continue providing sources the confidence and means to come forward privately and securely. This process remains at the core of the TTF’s work and its future reporting will largely center around the documents received by these sources.

MormonLeaks and FaithLeaks are now solely religious document archives operated by the TTF and will continue to serve as such for the foreseeable future.
