    Strengthening American Democracy

    WASHINGTON, D.C. — Public Campaign works to reform the system of campaign finance in the U.S. It provides research, public education, and other support to a broad range of organizations, including those working in local communities and at the state and national levels. This grant would be used for Public Campaign’s work to advance a system of campaign finance in New York State that combines small donor contributions and a public match to enable candidates to finance their elections through the contributions of a larger number of citizens rather than relying on a few wealthy donors.

The MacArthur Foundation awarded Public Campaign $375,000 between 1983 and 2015.
