Through a fiscal sponsor, this grant would provide support to Advocates for Development Assistance, a small organization focused on increasing support for aid from the U.S. government, and fostering improvements in the targeting and use of that aid. The work that would be supported, which complements existing grants related to the Modernizing Foreign Assistance Network, would use social mobilization and communication efforts to amplify the voice and influence of leading religious leaders in the United States in debates about the need for development assistance that is oriented toward results and reflects priorities of recipient countries. It is expected that an increase in the visibility of religious leaders can help to inform and moderate political positions related to the volume and orientation of foreign assistance.
