and Make People’s Lives Better

The Century Foundation (TCF) is a progressive, independent think tank that conducts research, develops solutions, and drives policy change to make people’s lives better.

Our priorities are the same as those expressed by millions of families sitting around the kitchen table tonight—how to get a good education, access high-quality affordable health care, get help to balance home and work responsibilities, and secure fair wages.

In 2022, we stand at a pivotal moment in history. We have a narrow window of opportunity to transform people’s lives for the better, make our economy more equitable, and reduce disparities in health care and education. Together, we can make this a reality. But to do so, we need your help to reshape our future for the better. Now is the time to act.

Your support of The Century Foundation helps our nation’s leaders deliver the transformative changes to policy that will make people’s lives better.
