The Roosevelt Institute brings together thousands of policy and thought leaders — from emerging voices in every state to Nobel laureate economists — to reimagine the rules. Over the last year, Roosevelt has undertaken an intensive effort to better understand how neoliberal belief systems shape today’s economy and society, and chart viable alternatives. Now, Roosevelt is ready to integrate this learning into all aspects of its work. The organization will invest in both internal capacity — research, policy analysis, communications, and outreach — and external partnership work, convening key leaders who will be critical to building consensus and ultimately driving a worldview shift away from neoliberalism toward sustainable systems and institutional change.

Grants to this Grantee
for support of the Roosevelt Society project
Grounded in the legacy of Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt, the Roosevelt Institute is both a leading economic and social policy think tank and home to scholars, public intellectuals, policy experts, and one of the nation’s largest student policy networks. Through research, advocacy, and communications, the institute has helped change the conversation around power and inequality, and drive increasing recognition of the need to rebalance power in the structures of our economy and democracy. This grant supports the Roosevelt Society project that will build an ideological home for the next generation of leaders in political economy. (Substrategy: Executive Branch)
