CREDO’s March donation recipients say thanks
Each month, CREDO takes a portion of its revenue, which adds up to nearly $200,000, and donates it to three progressive nonprofits. In March, we funded Brennan Center for Justice, Demand Progress and the National LGBTQ Task Force. Over 45,000 CREDO members voted on how to distribute our donations. Here are the voting results:
The nonprofits we fund are grateful for CREDO’s support and putting our donations to work!
Brennan Center for Justice
CREDO’s support comes at a pivotal time for the Brennan Center for Justice and our work to protect American democracy. Your generosity as a CREDO member will greatly bolster the Center’s innovative efforts to modernize elections, get big money out of politics, reduce mass incarceration, curb overbroad surveillance, and protect voting rights under attack. With a national spotlight on voter suppression, mega donor money, criminal justice and counter-terrorism, so much is possible – and also at stake. With CREDO as an ally, the Brennan Center will work to advance innovative policies and fight for victories for democracy and justice – in Congress and the states, the courts, and in the court of public opinion.
Demand Progress works at the forefront of campaigns to protect the open Internet and fight the ways in which money warps our politics to benefit the wealthy. These efforts have never been more critical: The Net Neutrality rules that passed last year are under constant threat; the government is seeking to expand its already-broad surveillance capacities; and we’re in the midst of what will likely be the most expensive election in the history of the country. The support of CREDO and its members will help keep us and our two million members fighting to protect our rights to communicate freely and maintain our democracy.
National LGBTQ Task Force
The National LGBTQ Task Force is building a future where everyone is free to be themselves in every aspect of their lives. Today, despite all the progress we’ve made to end discrimination, millions of LGBTQ people face barriers in every aspect of their lives: in housing, employment, healthcare, retirement, and basic human rights. These barriers must go. That’s why the Task Force is training and mobilizing millions of activists across our nation to deliver a world where you can be you. The generosity of CREDO members like you will help enable the Task Force to train and mobilize even more people to make positive lasting change and remove any barriers to the ability for everyone live their full lives. Thank you CREDO for your incredible support!
CREDO is excited to have funded these three progressive organizations and couldn’t have done it without our members who make these donations possible by using our products, like CREDO Mobile.
In April, we’re funding three more groups: Alliance for Justice, American Constitution Society and People for the American Way Foundation. Vote today to help us distribute nearly $200,000 to these incredible nonprofits.
