    Strengthening American Democracy

    WASHINGTON, D.C. — The Democracy 21 Education Fund is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization that works to reduce the role of money in politics through defending the constitutionality of campaign finance laws, ensuring that regulatory bodies are enforcing these laws, and educating the public about the rapidly changing landscape of money in politics issues. It conducts public education, media outreach, research, and litigation. It monitors public policies and their enforcement, develops policy proposals, and coordinates coalitions. This grant will provide general support.

The MacArthur Foundation awarded Democracy 21 Education Fund $200,000 between 2003 and 2014.
