Every Voice


About Us


Every Voice is a nonpartisan, social welfare organization, designated by the IRS as tax-exempt under code section 501(c)(4). We advocate for campaign finance systems that reduce political inequality and create opportunities for everyday citizens, without access to big money, to participate as donors and to run for office themselves.

We fund our work through gifts and grants from those who share this belief that every voice should count — both in elections and in policy decisions that impact our lives.

People support Every Voice with gifts ranging in size from $1 to $100,000 or more. Every dollar we receive helps us advance our mission.

Although we are not required by law to publicly disclose the names of our donors, we regularly post the names of our active major contributors on this site.

Organizations such as ours are required to make their IRS 990 tax filings available to individuals upon request. We post them so you don’t have to ask and so that they are readily available for anyone who is interested.

Contributions to Every Voice are not tax-deductible. We urge those for whom a tax-deduction is important to support our sister organization, Every Voice Center, a 501(c)3 organization.
