Omidyar’s Democracy Fund launches new website

Joe Goldman emailed me the other day with an update on the Democracy Fund (which Joe directs).  Joe is a Sustaining Member of NCDD, and his work at the Democracy Fund is definitely worth noting.


From Joe…

As someone who shares an interest in the health of our democracy, I wanted to let you know that we’ve just launched the Democracy Fund’s new website: www.democracyfund.org

In a blog post released today, Pierre Omidyar outlined the focus of the Democracy Fund’s work and the thinking behind its creation. We have been, and will continue to be, in heavy learning mode as we meet with, listen to, and collaborate with colleagues like you. We’re eager to join the many passionate people and organizations already working in this space, and we look forward to supporting promising ideas that put the interests of our country ahead of politics and party allegiances. In the spirit of collaboration, we’ll be sharing what we learn along the way through the Democracy Fund blog, and hope you find it to be informative and helpful.

In addition to visiting democracyfund.org, you can also follow the Democracy Fund on Facebook (www.facebook.com/demfund) and Twitter (twitter.com/democracyfund).

Also be sure to check out Joe’s welcome post, where he notes…

The Democracy Fund was created just over a year ago to support innovators and leaders as they strive to foster a stronger, healthier political system. In its first year, the Democracy Fund committed more than $5 million in grants to more than a dozen organizations. Some, like the Bipartisan Policy Center and the National Institute for Civil Discourse, are working to encourage more bipartisan problem solving so that our government can rise to the challenges that face us. Others, like theAnnenberg Public Policy Center and the Healthy Democracy Fund, are arming the public with better information and skills, so that voters can make more informed decisions.
