Business Support Partnerships

Under the umbrella of Kansas City PBS, a 501c(3) nonprofit Public Media organization, Flatland relies on the generous support of donors and community partners to help sustain our journalism efforts.

Business Support Partnerships are an avenue of support for organizations who would like to help Flatland continue sharing the stories that matter. Flatland Business Partners are recognized for their investment in local journalism – and are provided the opportunity to connect their message with our audience. It’s marketing and philanthropy, wrapped up in one.

The Flatland Difference

The Public Media audience is proven to be more loyal, more supportive of our business partners, and more engaged with their communities than that of for-profit media organizations.

Readers look at Flatland Business Partners in a different light. Your business is not simply an advertiser – you are funding a public service, and aligning your business values with those of Flatland in its mission to serve the greater good with community-minded, transparent education and conversation.

With over half a million users in 2022, Flatland is a competitive digital platform and your investment in digital advertising makes a big impact.

Flatland is deeply committed to maintaining brand trust with high standards of quality throughout all elements of our work – making user experience a priority on our digital platform.
