Our primary mission is to:

  • Engineer a 21st century democratic Republic

  • To Empower an informed Electorate using advanced Information Technologies

  • To Enhance Citizenship, Participation & Confidence in government

The Foundation thereby embodies Caltech’s own two-fold Mission Statement:

  • To marshal “… the world’s brightest minds and most innovative tools to address fundamental scientific questions and pressing societal challenges.”

  • No “societal challenge” today is more “pressing” than using “innovative new IT tools” to give modern substance to the meaning of a democratic Republic:

    “Wherein the People themselves decide directly all matters within their reach and competence.” (Thomas Jefferson).
