Donor Transparency Policy for OC World


OC World is committed to upholding the highest standards of transparency and integrity in all our operations, including our financial activities. As a public affairs TV program serving Orange County, California, we recognize the importance of maintaining the trust of our viewers, supporters, and the broader community. In line with this commitment, we have established the following donor transparency policy to ensure openness and accountability in our fundraising efforts.

Policy Statement:

  1. Disclosure of Donor Information:
    • OC World will disclose the names and affiliations of all major donors who contribute a cumulative amount exceeding $5,000 within a fiscal year. This information will be made readily available on our website and in any other relevant public materials.
  2. Anonymous Donations:
    • While OC World respects the privacy of donors who wish to remain anonymous, we will not accept anonymous contributions exceeding $100. Donors who wish to remain anonymous for larger contributions will be encouraged to provide written consent for their donation to be disclosed in accordance with this policy.
  3. Corporate and Organizational Donors:
    • Contributions from corporations, organizations, or other entities will be subject to the same disclosure requirements as individual donors. OC World will disclose the names and affiliations of corporate donors whose contributions meet or exceed the threshold outlined in this policy.
  4. Conflicts of Interest:
    • To maintain the integrity of our programming and editorial independence, OC World will not accept donations from individuals or entities that pose a conflict of interest with our mission or values. Any potential conflicts of interest will be carefully evaluated, and donations from such sources will be declined.
  5. Regular Review and Updates:
    • This donor transparency policy will be reviewed annually by the management team of OC World to ensure its continued effectiveness and relevance. Any necessary updates or revisions will be made in consultation with stakeholders and communicated transparently to the public.


At OC World, we are committed to fostering a culture of transparency, accountability, and trustworthiness in all our interactions with donors and the public. By adhering to the principles outlined in this policy, we aim to uphold the highest ethical standards and maintain the confidence of our viewers and supporters in our mission to serve the Orange County community through informative and engaging programming.
