WHY WE INVESTED
Open the Government is a hub for transparency and accountability organizations working to strengthen democracy and empower the public by advancing policies and practices that create a more open and accountable government. Open the Government convenes good government groups, leads advocacy efforts on government transparency, and provides opportunities for collaboration for a wide range of civil society groups. Open the Government also reveals government wrongdoing by filing its own Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests and training other organizations in how to utilize FOIA.
Democracy Fund supports their mission to expand outreach and coalition-building in service of an open and transparent government.
