Sweating the details today for policy progress tomorrow.

At a time when the focus of politics is on being the loudest voice and not the most informed, The Century Foundation delivers thoughtful, evidence-based policy leadership with purpose. And we’ve had a lot of practice at it: 100 years, in fact.

Our Impact

Our approach is simple: we sweat the details, doing the hard work today to ensure policy progress tomorrow. Over the past century, our experts have helped make the economy stronger, elections fairer, health care more affordable, and schools and society more equitable.
