The Colorado Sun isn’t robocalling you. Here’s what to do if you get a call. >>
The Colorado Sun is a journalist-owned, award-winning news outlet based in Denver that strives to cover all of Colorado so that our state — our community — can better understand itself.
In this way, we believe we can contribute to a more vibrant, informed and whole Colorado.
We are committed to fact-based, in-depth and nonpartisan journalism. We cover everything from politics and culture to the outdoor industry and education.
We are a public benefit corporation, which means we’re a for-profit company incorporated with a mission. Our mission is to provide our community with quality, non-partisan journalism — and no paywall. To read our most recent annual report, please visit coloradosun.com/annualreport. (Here are our past reports: 2019, 2020/2021)
Our goal is not to turn a profit. Our goal is to produce the best possible journalism. We do that with the help of you, our readers, and community backers.
Every dollar we take in goes directly toward the journalism we produce. Period. That’s our promise to our readers — along with striving to make sure each and every one of our stories are worth your time.

How We Are Funded
We were fortunate to find partners interested in creating a new model for local journalism. Civil helped The Colorado Sun get started with some financial and technical backing. We no longer are partnered with them. (We also got help from several Kickstarter backers.)
The news we report on has always been sourced, reported, edited and published right here in Colorado, except for those times that we’ve traveled out of state to bring you stories.
Every dollar we receive goes directly toward the journalism we produce. Period. Join us today.

Commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion
The Colorado Sun is committed to the work of fighting racism, bigotry and exclusion, and to promoting a more just and equitable world. Read our statement codifying that commitment, which includes actionable goals to hold us accountable.
Through a feature we call SunLit, done in partnership with Colorado Humanities & Center for the Book, The Colorado Sun will present current excerpts of works from some of the best Colorado fiction and nonfiction writers — always for free. We offer these literary appetizers, as well as author Q&As to lend context to the selections, as part of our mission to reinforce our shared sense of community, and to perhaps introduce readers to a new favorite writer.

Opinion & Letters to the Editor
The Colorado Sun is a nonpartisan news organization, and the opinions of columnists and editorial writers do not reflect the opinions of the newsroom.
We label opinion pieces (including cartoons) and letters to the editor prominently, using the clearest words possible to note that they are separate from news coverage. This includes when we post links to opinion pieces on social media accounts.
For more on how we will handle opinion pieces and letters to the editor, see our ethics policy.
To submit letters to the editor or if you are interested in becoming an opinion contributor, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
For more details on submission guidelines, check out this page.
As a public benefit corporation, we are required by state law to produce an annual report detailing the value we have brought to the community. It also requires us to conduct an assessment of how we’re doing against an independent standard. Read our reports.
