Chronicle of Philanthropy: “Foundations Must Step Up Giving to Government Watchdogs”


Foundations “would do well to give money to groups that are challenging how Washington works,” writes Pablo Eisenberg in the Chronicle of Philanthropy. “Watchdog groups like the Center for Effective Government, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, Common Cause, Corporate Accountability International, and the Government Accountability Project are doing outstanding work with limited budgets and insufficient staffs. Their activities are helping to keep democratic institutions transparent and publicly accountable. Yet their numbers are too few; we need many more of them.” As a program of the Government Accountability Project, we’ll second that thought. And we would add the Project on Government Oversight¬†and the Scientific Integrity Program at the Union of Concerned Scientists to that list.
