2022 Impact Report

The Rural Democracy Initiative 2022 Impact Report includes lessons from 2022, priorities for 2023, financials, and grantee spotlights. Last year, our donors helped us grant $13.3 million to groups in places where rural action will define policy and electoral outcomes, and we advised an additional $7 million in timely, aligned investments. Read the report, and learn more about our work, including:

  • Strengthening democracy (coalition of grantees in Alaska)
  • Protecting public education (Save Our Schools Arizona)
