Bread for the World Institute

For General Operating Support

This renewal grant would provide unrestricted funds for Bread for the World Institute's work, including its policy analysis and faith-based advocacy for more and better U.S. development assistance, U.S. leadership to strengthen agriculture and nutrition in poor countries, and the reform of U.S. food and farm policies. The Institute engages diverse church groups across the United States on public policy issues that are important to poor people. Bread for the World's ambitious Offering of Letters, which mobilizes religious congregations throughout the country, will focus in 2011 on foreign assistance reform. Supported by a previous Hewlett Foundation grant, the Institute also continues to host the Modernizing Foreign Assistance Network, a coalition of think tanks and advocacy organizations committed to improving the effectiveness of U.S. development aid.
