Grants to this Grantee
for general operating support  
The nonprofit Washington Monthly, founded in 1969, publishes independent public policy journalism. Known for taking on both liberals and conservatives, the Washington Monthly scrutinizes how the federal government and the American political system work, or don’t, and offers over-the-horizon, evidence-based solutions. This grant will strengthen the magazine’s ability to achieve its mission by producing more investigative reports on Congress, the executive branch, and the electoral system at a time when all three are under great stress. It will also enable the publication of more stories by distinguished writers and thinkers — including other Hewlett Foundation grantees — championing "big, smart" policy ideas that can address the catastrophic condition the country is in and compete with the many "big, dumb" ideas circulating in politics these days.
for general operating support  
The nonprofit Washington Monthly magazine, founded in 1969, publishes independent public policy journalism. Known for taking on both liberal and conservative ideologues, the Washington Monthly scrutinizes in depth how Congress, the federal government, and the American political system work, or don’t, and offers over-the-horizon, evidence-based solutions to help make them work better. A three-year general operating support grant will strengthen the magazine’s ability to achieve its overall mission by allowing it to produce more investigative reports on Congress, publish more distinguished writers and thinkers—including other Madison Initiative grantees—and invest in business-side activities that can increase revenues.
