I originally joined the Center for Defense Information two decades ago. I found their reporting to be in-depth and factual and their analyses to be spot on. Since they joined POGO, I've found the entire group maintains the same exceptional level of high quality work.
Best bang for my donor buck around. These folks do the serious research and ongoing bird-dogging that it takes to hold government and corporate bad actors accountable. One example is their ongoing coverage of the Savannah River nuclear waste scheme. There are many, many others. POGO is eminently worth supporting if you have some donation dollars that you want to put with a solid organization.
POGO Holds the Government in the sunshine for all concerned Citizens to see. Thank you.
POGO informs me on subjects of great military and economic importance. As a taxpayer, I am often horrified at the misuse of taxpayer funds. The consequences reach far beyond me - global warming, unrest in the Middle East - all these big issues share one ultimate cause: bad government. Whistleblowers seek to inform the public, which is horribly uninformed and misinformed in America, leading directly to more bad government policies and actions.
This is the only charity that oversees the government and its wasteful spending. Without its presence, things would surely be more wasteful. In particular, it tracks Pentagon spending which is amazingly wasteful and has helped keep the worst practices in check. I have donated to POGO for more than 10 years.
I have been donating to POGO for over 15 years. They seem to be the only organization that acts as oversight and wasteful government spending, especially defense spending.
POGO uncovers and covers very important issues that the news media overlooks. I really appreciate their efforts.
I learned of POGO through the Center for Defense Information, which I have supported for over 30 years. Both seem dedicated to improving government by identifying agencies, activities and projects that need improving, and by supporting whistleblowers and their protections. Their writings and conclusions appear fact-based, well researched and well reasoned.
I have been a donor to POGO since the late 1980's. Their success in keeping the government honest is exemplified in the growth they have sustained in since. In these times when the media is shirking their responsibilities for investigative reporting, we desperately need someone to take up the burden. POGO has demonstrated their determination to do whatever possible to keep a bright light on government activities. I am grateful for their capabilities and experience. I will continue to give what I can to help the work. I wish it were more.
I have been associated with POGO for a number of years and have their work to be of the greatest importance. The are effective in their work, and they communicate what is happening inside the government. I will continue to be a donor in the future.
I love and trust POGO. They do an incredible job of revealing blundering, corruption, and incompetency in our government. I read their newsletter every time it comes out and I donate to them regularly.
Without someone looking over their shoulder, our government would run off the rails. POGO is a crucial voice for citizens, and I believe that they make a substantial contribution to improving the way the US is run.
Transparency is the key to effective government and it does not come by accident, but by hard work. POGO exemplifies this hard work
