Sunlight Foundation Will Lay Off 5 Ahead of Merger Push

The Sunlight Foundation, the Washington, D.C.-based nonprofit dedicated to promoting transparency in government, will lay off five staffers in the coming weeks as it seeks to merge with another organization, according to a source at Sunlight.

The cuts come in the wake of a months-long search for an executive director to take over for Christopher Gates, who exited the nonprofit earlier this year. Although Sunlight considered about two dozen candidates to replace Gates, the nonprofit’s board failed to settle on his successor.

That’s prompted the board to reconsider the future of Sunlight, according to a statement published today by Chairman Mike Klein.
