In 2013, Demos will challenge our country to live up to the true meaning of democracy: A place where all Americans have an equal voice and an equal chance.

Your gift will help us focus our work over the next year in four areas: expanding the freedom to vote; rebuilding pathways to the middle class so that it is diverse, strong and expanding; reducing the role of wealth and corporate power in politics and policy; and developing an economic model that serves the common good.

We hope we can count on your support today.


Demos is a 501c3 nonprofit organization challenging our country—and our leaders—to live up to the true meaning of democracy: a place where every citizen has an equal voice and equal chance.

Your donation is fully tax-deductible and is critical in helping Demos move our country forward through our work generating new ideas, the research to support them, and the actions to realize them.

Of every $1 that Demos spends, 87 cents goes directly to our programmatic work fighting against growing inequality in this country and ensuring that we create a better America for future generations.
