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 the Great Democracy Initiative, to advance transformative new thinking on key policy issues
for general operating support
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.
for a project focused on neoliberalism
Inspired by the legacy of Franklin and Eleanor, the Roosevelt Institute reimagines America by bringing together thousands of stakeholders to rethink and reshape everything from local policy to federal legislation, orienting toward a new economic and political system: one built by many for the good of all. Support from the Hewlett Foundation will allow the Roosevelt Institute to examine questions regarding neoliberalism, its consequences, and its critics. This project will develop a framework to organize critiques and alternatives to neoliberalism, including deep examinations of several topics, such as globalization, technology, and labor markets.
