Dear valued OpenSecrets reader,

I’m sure we’re far from the only organization reaching out to you on the eve of Giving Tuesday, so I’ll be brief.

This year, OpenSecrets has continued to champion transparency in political fundraising and spending through its award-winning website and newsroom

We’ve built entirely new data tools and produced groundbreaking research, all while keeping you informed on the state of campaign finance, the surge of dark money, and the rise (and fall) of influential mega donors.  

You won’t find a greater concentration of money in politics researchers anywhere else. What we do – tracking this mountain of money – is unique. We track where the money’s going, who it’s coming from, and what impact it has on the democratic process. 

It takes countless hours and thousands of dollars to produce the data and analysis you’ve come to expect from us.

OpenSecrets is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, and we work diligently to spend our resources wisely. But, we are not without expenses, especially after doubling the size of our staff this past year. 

And as a nonprofit newsroom, we are beholden to readers like you who value the pursuit of transparency and accountability in our political system; without paywalls or subscription fees. 

During this giving season, we know there are a lot of worthy organizations vying for your attention.

We hope that, as a reader of our weekly reporting, you’ll demonstrate the value we add to your life and the American democratic process by making a donation to OpenSecrets for Giving Tuesday.
With gratitude,

Sheila Krumholz
Executive Director
