Close Up Foundation

The Close Up Foundation is the nation's largest nonprofit, nonpartisan citizenship education organization. Since its founding in 1970, Close Up has worked to promote responsible and informed participation in the democratic process through a variety of educational programs.

Each year, more than 20,000 students, teachers, and other adults take part in Close Up's programs in Washington, D.C. Since the inception of its Washington-based programs in 1971, the Close Up Foundation has welcomed nearly 650,000 students, educators, and other adults to the nation's capital.

Close Up's mission is to inform, inspire, and empower people to exercise the rights and accept the responsibilities of citizens in a democracy.

Close Up Foundation encourages responsible participation in the democratic process through educational programs and publications in government and citizenship.

The Foundation is committed to developing new and better ways for young people, teachers, and a widening circle of citizens of all ages to gain a practical understanding of how public policy affects their lives and how individual and collective efforts affect public policy.

Close Up conducts programs to increase civic involvement, promote civic achievement, and encourage civic awareness. In Washington, across the country, and around the world; in print and on television; and in the classroom and the community, the Foundation helps strengthen the nation's most valuable resource: its citizens.
