Exclusive sponsorship opportunities for organizations who believe that Nebraska needs journalists.

Member-supported. Independent. Fiercely Nebraska.

The Flatwater Free Press is Nebraska’s first independent, nonprofit newsroom focused on investigations and feature stories that matter.

  • We cover 4 key areas: Metro, Greater Nebraska, Statewide, and Historically Excluded communities.
  • Stories originally appear on our website, then in newspapers, on radio and TV stations across the state.
  • Our award-winning work has changed laws and lives, and celebrates the best of the state we call home.



Put your brand before 180,000 engaged, educated, Nebraskans who use our website each month. Article pages, home page, and other slots available.


Banner ads and sponsor messages available in our flagship weekly newsletter, with 13,000 subscribers and an open rate of 63%.


Topical discussions, listening tours, and our annual FlatFest offer an opportunity to align with civic-minded Nebraskans.
