Questa Del Rio News is an editorially independent local news source published by the Questa Economic Development Fund, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that works in the public interest to advance a diversified sustainable local economy.

The Questa Del Rio News shares this purpose as a separate program from QEDF.


The Society of Professional Journalists declares four principles as the foundation of ethical journalism and encourages their use in its practice by all people in all media. We have adopted these principles as our own:

•    Seek Truth and Report It.
•    Minimize Harm.
•    Act Independently.
•    Be Accountable and Transparent.


The Questa Del Rio News retains full authority over editorial content to protect our best journalistic and business interests. 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 to support our paper. Our editorial decisions are not made based on donor support.
  • We give no right of review or influence of editorial content.
  • We are committed to transparency in every aspect of funding our organization.
  • Accepting financial support does not mean we endorse donors or their products, services, or opinions.
  • We accept gifts and grants from individuals, organizations, and foundations to help with general operations, coverage of special projects and specific topics and maintain editorial control of that coverage. Our editorial judgments are made independently – not based on or influenced by donors. We do not give supporters the rights to assign, review, or edit content.
  • We make public all donors who give $5,000 or more per year.
  • We do not accept donations from anonymous sources, government entities, political parties, elected officials, or candidates actively seeking public office. We do not accept donations from sources who, deemed by our board of directors, present a conflict of interest with our work, or compromise our independence.
