Join CAGW | Citizens Against Government Waste


To join CAGW, make a contribution using our secure form, send your gift by mail, or call us at 1-800-USA-DEBT.

For every dollar contributed since 1984, CAGW has generated more than $9,000 in waste cuts.  That makes CAGW one of the best investments you can make for your country, your future, and future generations!

We need you and every taxpaying American with us to transform Washington's spendthrift culture and fight the special interests and self-serving politicians.  Join CAGW's one million members and supporters today in demanding accountability and fiscal responsibility from a government that all too often forgets that the taxpayer is footing the bill.

As a CAGW member, you will receive the annual Congressional Ratings, issue mailings, action alerts, surveys, and conference invitations.

Your tax-deductible contribution will safeguard your interests in Washington by helping CAGW investigate and expose how government spends or - as is all too often the case - misspends your tax dollars.

For more information about how your contribution will be used in the war on Government Waste, please review CAGW's Financial Information.
