for support of public education and research activities about campaign finance reform in NY state  
Founded in 1994, Proteus Fund is a national funding collaborative with several areas of expertise, including state-level campaign finance reform. Since the Supreme Court’s Citizens United ruling in 2010, which allows virtually unlimited corporate and union campaign expenditures, the amount of money flowing to state and federal elections has grown rapidly. With Congress unwilling to advance relevant policy proposals, states have become the primary focus for reforms. New York State currently offers the most promising environment for progress. With this grant, the Proteus fund will support several smaller organizations working to educate the public about campaign finance reform in New York State. MEDIA
for the Transparency and Accountability Initiative  
The Transparency and Accountability Initiative, hosted by Proteus Fund, is a donor collaborative that coordinates research and exchange among transparency and accountability donors. This grant will support implementation of a new three-year strategy to increase members’ collective impact by facilitating collective action around four streams of work: (a) data use for accountability, (b) taxation and tax governance, (c) strengthening civic space, and (d) learning for improved grantmaking.
