The Frontier’s mission is to create independent, illuminating journalism that is meaningful to Oklahomans.

We strive to shine a light on hypocrisy, fraud, abuse and wrongdoing at all levels in our community and state. We delve into complex issues and explain them to our readers, arming them with the information they need to make change.

Now we need to your help to continue that mission.

Starting Nov. 1 through Dec. 31, we’re eligible for a matching gift opportunity from NewsMatch, a national call-to-action that supports nonprofits like us.

NewsMatch will match your new monthly donation 12x or double your one-time gift, all up to $1,000.

We can earn up to $25,000 in matching dollars, which means The Frontier can raise $50,000 in total.

Can we count on you to invest in our journalism?

By taking advantage of this tax-deductible opportunity, you’ll enable The Frontier to bring you even more of the quality, honest journalism you’ve come to expect.

Simply put, without you, these stories don’t just go unread—they go untold.

Here’s a few of our favorite stories The Frontier has produced over the past year.

Shadow Land: How rape stays hidden in Oklahoma 

For a year, The Frontier examined how rape and sexual assaults are investigated, uncovering a war-within-a-war that requires state and local institutions to fight for money, manpower and proven training methods to assist victims.

Prior spousal abuse allegations surface against Gov. Fallin cabinet member

The Frontier broke the story about allegations of domestic violence against Preston Doerflinger, the interim director of the state’s embattled Health Department and one of Gov. Mary Fallin’s top aides. The story led to Doerflinger’s resignation.

Millions spent on drug testing welfare applicants for few positive results

The Frontier found that Oklahoma spent nearly $2.2 million over the past five years on mandatory drug testing for people applying for the  federal Temporary Assistance to Needy Families funds.

Bombing survivors left with questions over how donations were distributed

Our reporting uncovered that millions of dollars donated to help survivors of the 1995 bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building had been transfered to a private company with little transparency.
