Our mission is to end with opacity in public institutions, to keep close eye on public powers, to inform citizens and to use innovation to freely access to data that matters.
With your support, we can affect real change. We’ve already savoured many small victories, but there’s a long way to go. We will demonstrate, with rigor and credibility, that your support is worthwhile.
We are a non-profit organization. This is why you can have a tax deduction up to 75% of your donation on your tax return.
Write us at [email protected] or call us at +34 91 172 79 72 if you have any questions or if you’d like to increase your donation.
Frequently Asked Questions
A person or organization committed to improving transparency by regularly giving us a helping hand. Their valuable contribution - monthly, half-yearly or yearly - allows us to develop new projects and work in a more stable and independent way. Civio’s future is in their hands.
We are already managing to make a difference, and there’s plenty more to be done.
We have introduced issues into political agenda and social debate that were not previously touched, such as transparency, the right to know, details of meetings between senior officials and lobbyists, or citizen participation.
We have driven change in regulations at all levels, from Congress to city councils, so that issues such as public procurement or the activity of lobby groups come under public scrutiny, thus helping to avoid corruption.
We have uncovered malpractices in public management, from institutional advertising campaigns that skirted the law to the arbitrary granting of pardons, which today comes with a political cost.
We have made complex information about public policies and the major decisions that affect us understandable for all citizens.
And we can do so much more, with your help!
Civio is a non-profit organization, so you can write off up to 75% of your donation on your tax return if you live in Spain.
If you live outside of Spain, this deduction will be different, so write us if you have any questions.
Of course! You can also donate via Paypal.
Or, if you prefer to donate via bank transfer, you can make your contribution to this account number, specifying “donation” in the information box:

We work for transparency and we lead by example. That is why we publicly acknowledge the support of the people who make our work possible. To guarantee this transparency and the fullest independence of our work, if you are a person of political importance (we will investigate with a basic search on the internet) or if your donation is equal to or greater than €150 per year, we can only accept said donation in your full name. If you prefer not to disclose your full name, your donation amounts to less than €150 per year and you have no political ties, let us know and we will include your initials only. Civio does not accept anonymous donations under any circumstances. Thank you for your contributions, which allow us to ensure our operation complies with the highest demands.
