Every gift helps us continue our work to build a government for the people, by the people, in the 21st century.

In America, no one should be in jail for administrative failures. No one should go hungry because they can't access federally-funded food assistance programs. Our government services can be simple, accessible, and easy to use, and get better outcomes at a lower cost. We can serve everyone with respect and dignity. A government that works would be the biggest source of societal good for a generation.

Donating to Code for America is highly leveraged:

  • Every $50 we raise helps us to secure $9,000 of food for families in need.
  • Every $500 we raise helps us clear twenty five criminal records, unlocking opportunities for jobs, housing, and education.
  • Every $1,000 helps remind 5,000 people on probation about critical requirements to keep them out of jail.
