Donate to AskThem – Free & Open-Source -

AskThem Logo

The “We The People” for every elected official. Free & open-source.

AskThem is a 501(c)3 non-profit project for the public benefit. We seek to change the civic culture to ask more and better questions of public figures.

Donate to PPF on our new fundraising platform, Action Network. Your gift is tax-deductible. 

Please, help us keep AskThem up and running in 2014. AskThem should exist for every elected official, for public accountability and continual engagement with people in power. Over 27 million people visited our previous non-profit project, OpenCongress; now we urgently need funding support to continue AskThem and our open-source work in 2014.

Major donors

Considering a larger gift to support our mission of civic engagement and public Q&A?

Please be in touch:, or call my mobile at (917) followed by (753) and then finishing with 3462. We’re easy to reach and eager to talk. We’ve been hacking away since 2006 and before, and we have never had core funding support for our mission to make everyday online activism more user-friendly and effective. Imagine what PPF could do if our tiny non-profit team had a small development budget – some of the projects we’d create. The public needs more open-source, well-designed tools for participatory democracy and civic engagement. Imagine if just a small amount of the millions of dollars spent on previous open-government organizations had gone to the team behind OpenCongress, Amara, Fight For the Future and more – how much further along we’d be towards a networked public sphere.

Tax deductible
