Election Trust Initiative

The Election Trust Initiative develops and supports strategies to strengthen America’s election administration systems. We support the nonpartisan organizations, systems, and research that help local and state officials operate secure, transparent, accurate, and convenient elections.

We believe that accessible and trustworthy elections are the cornerstone of government of, by, and for the people. We are strictly nonpartisan and have a long-term perspective, focusing on improvements to elections that can be sustained year after year, regardless of which party is in power.

The Election Trust Initiative is supported by The Klarman Family Foundation, the Peter G. Peterson Foundation, The Pew Charitable Trusts, and the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation. It operates as a subsidiary of Pew. Read more about us.
