Support the Scholars Strategy Network

Help Make Policy Smarter

How to Donate

The Scholars Strategy Network leverages the underutilized resource of America's university system to support research-based civic campaigns, media coverage, and policymaking. We connect scholars and their research to important debates at the right times, in the right places, with the right people.

If you believe, like we do, that everyone involved in the policymaking process -- from grassroots advocates to journalists to policymakers -- should have access to the best research in understandable and accessible language, we hope you will consider investing in our work. Your donation to the Scholars Strategy Network supports research to improve public policy and strengthen democracy.

We are grateful for every donation. Any amount helps connect researchers and their work to decision-makers around the country to improve policy and strengthen democracy.


Selected Success Stories:

In Massachusetts, policymakers turned to our experts, whose research pointed to a bi-partisan tax law that gave 415,000 low-income families a raise on their Earned Income Tax Credit.

In Washington, our researchers told the White House to cut red tape for college financial aid, and they did, making life a little easier for millions of students.

And thanks, in part, to research and analysis provided by our members, over 200,000 more people in New Mexico now qualify for Medicaid coverage.
