The Democracy Fund works on things that make democracy work better. Created out of a deep respect for the U.S. Constitution and our nation’s core democratic values, we invest in organizations working to ensure that our political system is able to withstand new challenges and deliver on its promise to the American people. At the heart of our vision for the future are three core commitments: fostering more effective governance in the United States, modernizing our election and campaign finance systems, and strengthening our media to help people understand and participate in the democratic process. The Democracy Fund is affiliated with Democracy Fund Action.
HopeLab creates technology products to help people thrive. We focus on motivating positive health behavior in kids and young adults to support health and well-being. Our approach combines behavioral science, user-centered design, and strategic partnerships to drive broad impact, and we measure the effect of our work on both psychological and biological health. HopeLab projects include Re-Mission and Re-Mission 2, Zamzee, and an initiative aimed at supporting resilience through social tech innovation.
