Happy birthday, Sunlight! We’re turning 12 this week.


We work to make government more transparent every month of the year and every hour on the clock: the Sunlight Foundation turns 12 this week!

We’re commemorating this milestone in our journey to take a moment to thank you for being part of this work and for supporting more transparent, accountable, and participatory government. Whether you want more transparency at the federal level, in all 50 states, in cities across the country, countries across the globe, or all of the above, we are grateful to have friends, supporters, and allies like you as we celebrate the year past and the year ahead.

You can join the celebration! Make a contribution to the Sunlight Foundation in honor of our anniversary. Your support ensures that we can continue working toward government transparency for many years to come.

Here’s to 12 years of advocacy, development, policy change, and partnerships. We’re looking forward to the new horizons still ahead.
