Bread for the World Institute

For General Operating Support

This grant would provide unrestricted funds for Bread for the World Institute, which engages diverse church groups across the United States to support policies that will reduce hunger at home and abroad. During this grant period, the Institute will work to protect funding for development assistance, mobilize U.S. leadership for the next round of global development goals, and push for effective food security programs. Supported by a previous Hewlett Foundation grant, the Institute continues to serve as the fiscal sponsor of the Modernizing Foreign Assistance Network, a coalition of think tanks and advocacy organizations that promotes reforms of U.S. development aid.
