About the Foundation

The Arkay Foundation envisions a society characterized by strong participatory democracy, economic and social justice, and environmental protection. The Foundation works to achieve this vision by focusing on reducing the undue influence of money in the U.S. political process and makes grants to organizations that are working strategically to address this issue. The Foundation favors organizations and programs that have the greatest potential for leveraging change and having widespread impact.
