Citizens Against Government Waste

About Citizens Against Government Waste

Founded in 1984 by the late businessman J. Peter Grace and late Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist Jack Anderson, Citizens Against Government Waste (CAGW) is the legacy of President Ronald Reagan's Private Sector Survey on Cost Control, also known as the Grace Commission.

CAGW is a 501(c)(3) private, nonpartisan, nonprofit organization representing more than 1 million members and supporters nationwide. CAGW works to eliminate waste, fraud, abuse, and mismanagement in government through research and public education activities.

The Council for Citizens Against Government Waste (CCAGW) is the 501(c)(4) lobbying arm of CAGW. CCAGW’s mission is to advocate the elimination of waste and inefficiency in government through lobbying and grassroots activities.
