National Security Archive Fund

The National Security Archive opens governments at home and abroad by challenging unnecessary national security secrecy, using and advocating freedom of information laws, and analyzing and publishing former secrets.

​Why We Invested

The National Security Archive has launched ten new openness and accountability initiatives in response to new challenges to our American democracy, including major Freedom of Information Act litigation gains, open the track records of the new appointees, save White House visitor logs, and preserve agency email that will provide evidence for investigators and whistleblowers to come.

To accommodate this increased scale of work, our grant supports hiring of a full-time in-house litigator who can recruit and coordinate pro bono firms, marshal staff expertise, develop time-sensitive and critical cases, and pressure the administration towards greater transparency. This grant will also provide general operating support for the National Security Archive Fund that will allow them to increase their over-all capacity as an organization.
