Donate To Citizens Oversight

We are a 501c3, tax exempt organization. You can deduct any contributions you make from your taxable income. There is no upper limit!

Citizens Oversight is fully engaged with the following current projects that can benefit from your monetary support:
  • Stop Nuke Dump -- We sued the Coastal Commission for permitting the "Nuke Dump" only yards from the ocean and inches over the high tide level. Our court case has been allowed to progress by the court, and as of April 7, 2017, Southern California Edison, the applicant, has agreed to negotiate a settlement. Our goal is to move the canisters of spent fuel without storing them in the on-site proposed storage facility and move them promptly to an off-site location, to be determined. We need to raise approximately $20K for court costs and fees for this process.
  • Election Integrity -- We received a JUDGMENT IN OUR FAVOR in our Lawsuit in San Diego. Now, we need to appeal it so it can be applied to all counties. Our goal to support the appeal is $25K. See more: [Election Audit Lawsuit]] filed against San Diego Registrar of Voters, Michael Vu regarding election processing irregularities that make people wonder, what else is going on? Please contribute to the war chest! See more here: Complaint for Declarative Relief -- Lutz vs. Vu

Affiliate your club or organization, or just endorse Citizens Oversight

We encourage organizations such as clubs, associations and nonprofits, to endorse us and promote that their members join Citizens Oversight.

  • Nonpartisan clubs, associations, and nonprofits - Your group as a whole can become an affiliate of Citizens Oversight and directly engage to address local issues. Your members can directly become members of COPS or remain as members of your organization which then can operate as a COPS affiliate. We recommend that your group contribute as a whole at least at the "Underwriter" level, but we will accept you even if you cannot afford any direct contribution. If you do not have a 501(c)3 status, we can extend that to your group if you become an official affiliate. This is very useful to get the best rates on meeting rooms, postage, and other expenses. To become an affiliate, you will either provide your membership list to us or allow us to promote COPS membership to your membership through your staff.

  • Partisan clubs, political committees, etc. -- Your group can endorse Citizens Oversight and make contributions as a unit, but a partisan group cannot become an affiliate. Although we can accept endorsement and contributions from partisan clubs and political committees, we cannot make you an official "affiliate" since we are organized as a 501(c)3 nonprofit. This makes donations to our organization tax deductible, but we cannot engage in any partisan activities. If your organization is explicitly partisan, you will need to establish a separate nonpartisan association that can run in parallel with your main group if you want to establish an affiliate chapter.
