About

Mission

Borderless Magazine NFP is a nonprofit news outlet that is reimagining immigration journalism for a more just and equitable future.

We humanize stories of immigration by shining light on the diversity, resilience and resistance of people impacted by immigration policies today. We report and publish stories in our online publication, we work with immigrants and their allies to tell their own stories, and we train journalists to more ethically report on immigration issues.

Founded in 2017 as 90 Days, 90 Voices NFP, our work has been featured on Chicago Public Radio, Wisconsin Public Television, and in Block Club Chicago. We are the winners of the Chicago Society of Professional Journalists’ “Best Start-Up” award and were finalists for the Chicago SPJ’s 2018 awards for “Best In-depth Reporting in a Community Newspaper” and “Best In-depth Report or Series.”

Borderless Magazine NFP is a Section 501(c) (3) charitable organization, EIN 83-1266434. All donations are deemed tax-deductible absent any limitations on deductibility applicable to a particular taxpayer.

Editorial Independence Policy

We subscribe to standards of editorial independence adopted by the Institute for Nonprofit News:

Our organization retains full authority over editorial content to protect the best journalistic and business interests of our organization. We maintain a firewall between news coverage decisions and sources of all revenue. Acceptance of financial support does not constitute implied or actual endorsement of donors or their products, services or opinions.

We accept gifts, grants and sponsorships from individuals and organizations for the general support of our activities, but our news judgments are made independently and not on the basis of donor support.

Our organization may consider donations to support the coverage of particular topics, but our organization maintains editorial control of the coverage. We will cede no right of review or influence of editorial content, nor of unauthorized distribution of editorial content.
Our organization will make public all donors who give a total of $5,000 or more per year. We will accept anonymous donations for general support only if it is clear that sufficient safeguards have been put into place that the expenditure of that donation is made independently by our organization and in compliance with INN’s Membership Standards.
