There are several ways to donate and make a lasting impact on our work building a thriving democracy.
Monthly donations keep POGO nimble, allowing us to keep a watchful eye on the daily happenings of our government even as we continue moving forward with long planned projects for long-term reform. These donations help us strike while the iron is hot. They let us explore every tip we receive, investigate when we hear about wrongdoing, and increase or redirect our advocacy in response to a changing political landscape.
Donate whatever you can per month and watch the power of your consistent dollars fuel our fight for a government that works for the public. As a monthly donor, you are a vital partner in funding this crucial work.
