Overview
Founded in 2007 by former Senate majority leaders Howard Baker, Tom Daschle, Bob Dole, and George Mitchell, the Bipartisan Policy Center is a Washington, DC–based think tank devoted to promoting bipartisanship. The Center supports deliberations on a range of issues by former elected and appointed officials, business and labor leaders, and academics and advocates. This grant follows an earlier one and would support the organization’s Commission on Political Reform, launched in 2010, to develop practical recommendations addressing current problems of political polarization with a focus on (1) congressional reform; (2) changes to our electoral system; and (3) removing obstacles to public service.

The Bipartisan Policy Center works with Republicans and Democrats to develop solutions to the key challenges facing the nation. The center recruits talented leaders, including former elected officials, business leaders, academics, and advocates from all sides of the political spectrum, to create policy solutions—utilizing a combination of rigorous analysis, reasoned negotiation, and respectful dialogue. The center believes that cooperation between the political parties is the only viable path to solving critical problems, and with the support of the Hewlett Foundation, it will continue to advance bipartisan collaboration for the benefit of all Americans.
