Democracy Fund


ThinkTennessee is a nonpartisan, nonprofit think tank dedicated to empowering leaders from across Tennessee and both sides of the aisle to take actions on pragmatic ideas that move the state forward.


Tennesseans face many challenges, including low levels of civic participation and declining trust. Tennessee ranks 40th in voter registration and 50th in voter turnout nationally. To address these challenges, ThinkTennessee provides unbiased research and analysis, informing key stakeholders about evidence-based ideas that will create civic and economic opportunity in Tennessee.

DemocracyFund is proud to support ThinkTennessee as it develops, and advocates for, systemic solutions that receive public and bipartisan support.
