What I am Learning: Spot.us



“Spot.Us is a nonprofit project to pioneer “community powered reporting.” Through Spot.Us the public can commission journalists to do reporting on important and perhaps overlooked topics. Contributions are tax deductible and we partner with news organizations to distribute content under appropriate licenses. Community members can also take a survey from our sponsors, when available, to support the story of their choice at no cost. Such a deal! We practice the “TAO of Journalism” (Transparency, Accountability, and Openness). To our knowledge Spot.Us is the only open source fundraising platform. You can learn more about us at our press page. Or check out our success stories and partners page. Got questions, try the Frequently Asked Questions page.”
