Overview
Inspired by the legacy of Franklin and Eleanor, the Institute works to "create a nation where everyone enjoys a fair share of our collective prosperity." The Institute maintains two core programs: the Four Freedoms Center think tank and the Campus Network, the nation’s largest student policy network. The former concentrates on "the intersection of structural changes in the economy and the myriad challenges facing low-wage and middle-class workers." The Campus Network and its related Alumni Network of 5,000 members work to develop the next generation of civic leaders—engaging 10,000 students on more than 120 college campuses in 38 states across the country as they construct and pursue policy reforms. This grant will support the Institute and its Campus Network as it continues to refine and expand these programs.

Grants to this Grantee
for general operating support  
The Roosevelt Institute works to advance an economic agenda that puts families and workers first — one that tackles concentrated wealth and power, strengthens the countervailing power of workers and communities, and reimagines public power as essential to supporting economic security and shared prosperity in ways that markets, when left alone, never will. This work is especially critical in this moment of crisis, which calls for both immediate relief and for long-term structural solutions. By combining thoughtful research and analysis with strategic communications and partnerships, Roosevelt develops and promotes new economic thinking and policy ideas aimed at building toward a more resilient, just, and sustainable future.
for the climate finance regulatory project  
The Roosevelt Institute’s climate economics program builds support among climate and economic policy groups for regulatory policies that shape private investment in large-scale rapid decarbonization of the U.S. economy, while building good jobs and equity. A key plank of this program focuses on regulatory rules and structures — including SEC reforms, Federal Reserve policy, and carbon accounting rules — that can deter private investment in carbon-intensive activities and promote private investment in green industry.
