The Open Philanthropy Project recommended a grant of $222,500 to Voters Organized to Educate for general support. The grant was intended to support its development of evidence-based voter engagement strategies for formerly incarcerated people and families throughout Louisiana. Funds were intended to pay for increased staffing, website development, direct mailings, and a contract with the Analyst Institute to support testing and voter engagement research.

This grant was made by a 501(c)(4) social welfare organization, to which we occasionally make funding recommendations.

The Open Philanthropy Project has separately recommended a grant to Voice of the Experienced, a 501(c)(3) organization affiliated with Voters Organized to Educate.
