The Sunlight Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, nonpartisan organization and a recognized national leader in making government transparent and accountable. We harness new technologies, big data and the social web to improve the quality of oversight of government and those who seek to influence it. We provide new tools, resources and training for citizens and journalists alike and we have driven the most significant transparency policy reforms at the national level in the last decade. Our work has dramatically expanded access to vital government information, resulting in significantly more timely, accurate and effective reporting of political influence—and a more engaged citizenry.
Please make a contribution and take a stand for transparency, accountability and open government.
