Support the Sunlight Foundation this #GivingTuesday


It’s been a busy year. Battling corruption and protecting democracy is not an easy job. We need your help to keep fighting the good fight.

Next week, November 27th, is #GivingTuesday, an international day of giving to charities and nonprofits that balances the consumerism of Black Friday and Cyber Monday. While we know you have options when it comes to your donations, here’s why we hope you’ll support the Sunlight Foundation this year:

We’re tracking Trump’s growing conflicts of interest.

The President has an unprecedented amount of money tied up in private interests and at Sunlight we’ve been trying to make sense of what all of it means through our “Tracking Trump’s Conflicts of Interest” project. We’ve launched the conflict database, which lists potential conflicts that exist for President Trump and the First Family. With your support, we will be able to continue expanding the database and connecting the dots between the President’s web of financial and business interests.

We’re scaling up our efforts to monitor changes to public information on federal websites.

Since its launch in February 2018, the Web Integrity Project has sourced more than 90 news articles and driven multiple congressional oversight efforts by the House and Senate in response to the unjustified removals of resources from federal websites relating to health, immigration, and criminal justice we’ve discovered. Your contribution will help us expand our work into new topic areas and strengthen our efforts to research and advocate for better Web governance policy.

We’re helping U.S. cities show the world what democracy looks like.

Our Open Cities team has been working hard to help local governments lead the country in becoming more equitable, democratic, inclusive, and just. You support will enable us to continue promoting transparency and accountability that help cities better serve all residents.

If you value the work Sunlight has done this year and would like to see it continue and grow, we hope that you’ll consider donating to us directly. You can also support us as you go about your holiday shopping by shopping on AmazonSmile.

After you’ve donated, we hope you’ll share your action with your family, friends, colleagues and neighbors on Facebook, Twitter  and other social networks.

Thank you for your support!
