As many of your know, CRI funds and sponsors the Transparent Delaware website, viewable at www.transparentdelaware.org. Transparent Delaware has become the go-to website in the First State for data on State Payroll and State Vendor Contract Data for many concerned citizens.
Unfortunately, our grant to fund the yearly updates required to keep transparentdelaware.org up to date has expired. We need $3900 to update the information on the site or else we will have to shut it down. We are asking you, our friends of CRI, to help us by making a contribution to CRI targeted to updating the transparentdelaware.org site.
CRI has worked hard to update the information on the site to bring you 2013 Payroll and Vendor Contract data so that anyone who is interested could view how the state pays its employees and those the state does contract business with. This information is critical to news reporters, elected officials, candidates for public office, concerned citizen activists, state employees comparing their salaries to their peers and superiors, or anyone with an interest in how the state spends money.
Now, Transparent Delaware will soon be unavailable to the public unless we raise $3,900 to keep the website updated and available to the public. Unfortunately, the internet is not always “free” and we would be disappointed to leave the most recently available data not easy accessible to you the public. Therefore, we are asking if you would give a most generous contribution to CRI for the purposes of keeping Transparent Delaware open to all. If you believe Delaware’s payment information should be available to the public, please click HERE to donate or send a tax-deductible contribution to:

If we reach our fundraising goals our web host has said it will reactivate the website with the newest information.
We are grateful for your support. Any amount you can contribute to our goal will be appreciated.
