Thanks to the generous support of many corporations, foundations, and individuals that support Close Up’s mission, young people across the country have the opportunity to participate in our transformational programs where they learn and practice the habits of active and effective citizenship.

If you are interested in becoming a sponsor, please contact Mia Charity or call 800-CLOSE UP today.

Close Up would like to acknowledge the following donors for their commitment to Close Up and civic education:


"Close Up was the greatest experience of my life. It has inspired me to become a political leader in this great country. I have not only gained an even greater expansion of knowledge in the area of politics, but I have also gained lifelong friends."
