The COVID-19 pandemic has brought unbearable hardship, but the nation’s collective response to it has made one thing clearer than ever before: policy matters. When America’s systems are broken, it’s people who pay the price. With your help, The Century Foundation is helping the nation’s leaders to deliver transformational changes to policy that will make people’s lives better. 

See how we made change in our 2021 Annual Report, “From Pandemic to Progress”

Our expert staff—working on education, health care, economic opportunity, and international affairs—is dedicated to providing essential and brave policy recommendations, backed by countless hours of rigorous research. They are connected to legislative leaders and are poised to do their part—but they need your help. 

With your financial support, we can continue this work that touches every corner of American life.

Help us create policy that changes lives.
