Clean Elections Texas Education Fund, or CETEF, is a 501(c)(3) organization and is a separate organization from Clean Elections Texas, or CETex, although we share many of the same goals. CETEF is governed by a Board of Directors and also as an Advisory Board.
CETEF is a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization dedicated to educating Texans about the way our elections work, the role money plays in elections, and the option of public funding.
CETEF’s goals are: 1. research and education for the voters about the role of money in elections in Texas; 2. offering information to the public about the option of public financing for political campaigns; and 3. encouragement of a more transparent government process in Texas.
Your donations to CETEF will help provide education to voters, the media, legislators, other civic organizations, and students through printed matter, the Internet, town halls, house parties, a speaker’s bureau, DVD’s, YouTube videos, training sessions, and more.
We are growing at a fast pace and taking advantage of the clamor against the huge influx of money into our campaigns. Before people can decide on a solution, they need to understand the problem. We are helping people understand the many and varied ways that money flows into political campaigns, the current campaign finance laws, the history of campaign finance decisions from the Supreme Court, and the impact of this money on campaigns and legislation. We help people explore possible solutions and introduce them to the option of public funding and how it works in various states and cities.
Please consider a gift of $250, $100, $50, $25 or other. We will be grateful for whatever you can give to this vital cause. Your gift to Clean Elections Texas Education Fund is tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law.
