Election 2020

The 2020 election will help determine the direction the country takes on issues like racial equity, the future of education, childcare, the environment, public health, among many others. Through November, we’ll be sharing perspectives, guidance, and vetted funds and organizations to help donors strengthen democracy, no matter which side of the aisle you're on.

Access to Voting

The right to vote in local, state, and national elections is a vital piece of our democracy. If more people vote, our systems can better serve communities across the country. Learn more about efforts and organizations that are working to streamline and modernize our election system.

Get Out the Vote

As our country becomes more diverse, philanthropy has an opportunity to support efforts to ensure groups historically underrepresented in the electorate show up to vote. Learn about organizations that are addressing this issue.


A free press -- and informed and engaged citizens -- are crucial to a healthy democracy. How can we ensure our newsrooms, which are facing budget cuts, look like the communities they serve and rebuild Americans' trust? We're sharing resources here to help strengthen the fourth estate.

Strengthening Democracy

The picture of a strong democracy includes fair processes and empowered citizens, among other things. To ensure we have these components, organizations around the country are working on efforts to support everything from increased civic engagement to youth advocacy. Connect with them here.
