About Us

The Fund for Constitutional Government (FCG) is a publicly funded foundation dedicated to exposing and correcting corruption in the United States federal government. FCG accomplishes this work by funding organizations and journalists working to advance and sustain an open and accountable government. 

The Fund for Constitutional Government was founded in 1974, in the belief that this country’s elected leaders, government agencies and corporations should uphold the principles set forth in the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. FCG protects the Constitution through research, public education, and litigation. We strive to awaken the American public’s concern about the Constitution and to stimulate interest in monitoring how government conducts its business.

FCG operates on the premise that a well-informed citizenry is essential to a successful democracy. Originally founded in response to the Watergate scandal, FCG’s goal was to create the public scrutiny necessary to prevent future government abuses of power. FCG chooses its activities and projects for their ability to provide oversight, protect whistleblowers and publicize constitutional violations.
