Donate now and invest in the future of democracy

Most people around the world cherish the idea of democracy. At the same time, democracy is under attack by extremist forces and challenged by political polarisation and conflicts. No democracy, old or new, is immune to these dangers.

Democracy Reporting International (DRI) works with citizens to deliver the promise of democracy. In our work, we see every day that most people want to live in a system where they can elect honourable leaders and shape the institutions that serve their needs.

By supporting our projects defending people’s rights to live a dignified life and to participate in the shaping of their community, you will help us advance the cause of democracy globally.

When you donate to DRI, you will:

  • Support leaders and people who tirelessly work to defend and strengthen democracy worldwide.
  • Expand our work to where it is most needed.
  • Help us be flexible and respond quickly to unexpected needs and political developments, such as the war against Ukraine or the challenges of the covid pandemic.
  • Support our signature impartial research and bring it to relevant decision-makers.
  • Develop innovative approaches to make societies around the world more democratic.

DRI is a CAF International Validated Organisation

Organizations that have been validated by CAF International have completed an extensive application and due diligence process with one of CAF International’s Global Offices. The CAF International Validated Organization Badge is awarded to organizations that are structured and operated as nonprofit entities. This is confirmed by a validation process that goes far beyond a simple reliance on a foreign government database.

The CAF International validation process includes a review of an organization’s key operational elements such as their governance structure, registration status, annual financial statements, online and media presence, and their board members and senior staff. This validation process ensures that all funds sent to the organization will be used charitably, and it allows CAF International and their donors to mitigate the risk of fraud, money laundering, and other criminal activities.
