Overview
Issue One is a national nonpartisan organization seeking to reduce the influence of money in politics by building a reform coalition — now comprised of more than 175 former members of Congress from across the political spectrum — to promote policy solutions. To further support this goal, Issue One is investing in the most promising state and local efforts to address money in politics, and advancing pro-democracy jurisprudence reform. Given the growing demand for accurate, credible information on government ethics and accountability, Issue One is also increasingly contributing to this dialogue from their unique bipartisan perspective.

Grants to this Grantee
for general operating support  
The Fund for the Republic (FFR) is a national nonpartisan organization seeking to reduce the dominance of well-financed interests over politics and policymaking. The Fund helps to connect and support nonprofits, reformers, and funders working in the money-in-politics field, while also engaging more individual philanthropists to support reform efforts. As a start-up, the Fund has assembled an impressive leadership team and board and has had significant early impact on the field. This grant would help the organization develop a concrete and actionable fundraising plan, build organizational capacity, and begin execution.
