Times Publishing is a private company that pays taxes on its profits and pays dividends to the Poynter Institute. The school, based in St. Petersburg, is a nonprofit and therefore makes certain annual reports to the IRS.

All the executives whose salaries were reported are officers or trustees of the Poynter Institute.
