For the Good of Illinois



OUR VISION: "Every Dime. Online. In Real Time."
Post online all disclosed spending at every level of government- from local units through federal. Currently, Open The Books Portal contains over 2 billion lines of government spending. We are rapidly expanding data in all 50 states down to the municipal level and investing in the latest technologies to slice and display the data. Our goal is to acquire and post online an additional 1 billion lines of government spending during 2015.

We need your financial support.

"Open The Books" is fast becoming a national rallying cry in the debate on spending. Recently, U.S. Senator Tom Coburn, sponsor of the 2006 "Google Your Government Act," recognized our work, "Open the Books is doing the work I envisioned when the Coburn-Obama bill became law.  Their innovative app and other tools are putting sunlight through a magnifying glass."

Our organization relies on support of generous donors such as you. Please invest in our nationally leading transparency work today.
