The following material comes from the AlterNet.org website:
AlterNet is a program of the Independent Media Institute (IMI), a nonprofit organization which empowers people with independent journalism, information, and media tools.
IMI is dedicated to strengthening and supporting independent journalism, and to improving the public's access to independent information sources. We believe democracy is enhanced and public debate broadened when more voices are heard and more points of view are made available.
In addition to AlterNet, IMI has two other programs: WireTap, an online magazine for socially conscious youth and the SPIN Project, which trains grassroots and advocacy groups in communication skills.
The SPIN Project
Funding for AlterNet comes from private foundations and individual donors. Funding for SPIN comes from private foundations and from fees for service, and WireTap is funded by private foundations.

AlterNet was originally part of the Institute for Alternative Journalism. An unflattering background story about the IAJ, from 1997, is at the Radio4All website, authored by Ron Curran of the San Francisco Bay Guardian.
