The California Voter Foundation is pleased to announce a gift of $25,000 received from Craig Newmark Philanthropies to support nonpartisan voter education and outreach activities to help Californians participate in the 2020 Presidential Election.

This generous donation comes at an important time when the coronavirus pandemic is creating difficult challenges for voters and election officials alike. CVF is committed to helping voters successfully cast vote-by-mail ballots and utilize in-person voting options to maximize voter turnout and ensure Californians can safely and securely cast ballots. 

“CVF is deeply grateful for the generous support provided by Craig Newmark through his charitable giving and honored to be included among the numerous worthy causes supported by Craig Newmark Philanthropies working to advance fairness, opportunity and respect,” said CVF President & Founder Kim Alexander. 

Other major contributors to CVF’s 2020 elections work include Silicon Valley Community Foundation and a Transient Occupancy Tax grant from the County of Sacramento, which are supporting CVF’s research into rejected vote-by-mail ballots and ways to reduce ballot rejection and increase voter turnout.

CVF’s work is also supported through generous donations from numerous individuals.  The California Voter Foundation is a 5013(c)(3) organization and all donations are tax-deductible. Learn more at
