Donors and Charitable Foundations – Fund Our Work

PPF’s work on OpenCongress provided a leading example of how open technology can educate the public, empower diverse communities, and create transparency in government.

We have a good start, but really, we’ve just begun. The Participatory Politics Foundation, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, is actively seeking funding partners for Sludge’s investigative journalism, and for the re-development of other free, libre and open-source projects AskThem and Councilmatic.

Currently, our tools are used by a variety of individuals, political bloggers, journalists, and issue-based groups for collaborative watchdogging of Congress. With additional funding, OpenCongress and OpenGovernment can become far more powerful platforms for political participation, both online and offline. We seek to add new data sources about money in politics, build innovative new open-source web features, and expand our non-profit web development team to better meet the needs of our large user community. We have big plans.

Towards these ends, we simply need more resources to start building. Are you in a position to give $1,000 or more to help us create some amazing new open-source tools? To start a conversation about how our work can address your personal giving interests or your foundation’s program areas, please get in touch with David Moore: david {@} … readsludge.com.
