The Roosevelt Institute is a nonprofit organization devoted to carrying forward the legacy and values of Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt by developing ideas and leadership to promote opportunity for Americans. Two of the Institute’s core programs, the Campus Network and Pipeline, work to develop the next generation of civic leaders. These efforts engage students on more than 100 college campuses alongside fourteen chapters of young professionals across the country as they construct and pursue policy reforms. As the Network celebrates its tenth anniversary, this grant would support deeper alumni engagement, introduction of new member tracking tools, and an evaluation of program impact.

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.
