The Campaign Finance Institute is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization recognized as the leading think tank focused on campaign finance reform issues. In this capacity, it provides timely analysis of how candidates, parties, and interest groups are raising money; develops and assesses reform proposals; and shares its findings and recommendations with the academic and policy reform communities. Over the next two years, the Institute will assess a number of challenges arising in the rapidly evolving world of campaign finance, as well as policy options for responding to them. This grant would equip the Institute to carry out its ambitious plans and to respond to new opportunities as they arise.
