The Democracy Education Network (DEN) is one of Canada's leading civics education organizations. Since 1993, DEN has worked people and organizations across Canada to increase the knowledge and skills of Canadians so they can effectively participate in government and big business decision-making processes.
The objectives of DEN are:
* To undertake research into the institutional processes of Canadian governments and businesses, and into effective democratic decision-making processes;
* To train people in the skills of participating in these processes, and governments and corporations in how to use these processes; and
* To develop and disseminate civic educational materials for various age groups.
When you click on "Make Donation" you will see that DEN also has a specific Government Accountability Fund and a specific Corporate Responsibility Fund to fund research and educational initiatives on how governments and big businesses work in Canada.
DEN also has a VotePromise.ca Fund to support its VotePromise.ca voter turnout initiative.
You can donate to DEN's general research and civics education programs, or to one of the funds.
