National Security Archive Fund

The National Security Archive increases government transparency by challenging unnecessary national security secrecy, using and advocating for freedom of information laws, and analyzing and publishing declassified government documents.

​Why We Invested

This grant to the National Security Archive helps it fight for a more open and accountable government. The Archive challenges unnecessary secrecy done in the name of national security, uses and advocates for the strengthening of freedom of information laws, and regularly publishes thousands of pages of previously secret government documents.

Democracy Fund believes that civil society watchdogs, such as the National Security Archive, as well as independent institutions and the media, play a critical role in holding those in power accountable to the Constitution, the law, and the people.
