  • Type of Support
Political culture and civic engagement in the United States continue to decline relative to both historic precedent and other nations, and Americans’ support for government has reached historic lows. These trends threaten the nation’s ability to address a range of complex problems, from environmental threats to educational ineffectiveness. This grant, in partnership with the Rockefeller Brothers Fund and a number of other foundations, would support the planning phase of a potential three-year project aimed at developing a shared vision or "national purpose" among Americans. Depending upon results from this planning phase, the project would aim to convene a series of conversations across the country to advance the resulting vision in a way that amplifies citizens’ voices and reframes the public debate about America’s future.
