Like many non-profits, we count on generous efforts from many in key roles in which we cannot afford an employee. These include our Board Members, 12 Regional Coordinators, and more than 100 State and Issue Coordinators.

Why should you care about secret political donations? Plain and simple, you are losing your hard-earned money. $1,300 a year from state pay-for-play, according to a university study, and many times that in local and federal pay-for-play. TBOR is fixing this problem, but we need your help on the ground. Make an impact near you! 


Help us stop the buying and selling of politicians. When you donate to Take Back Our Republic, your dollars will be spent transparently, something we want to be able to say about our elected officials in the coming years!
