Organization Description

Results for America is the leading, national nonprofit organization helping policymakers at all levels of government harness the power of evidence and data to solve the world’s greatest challenges.

Since its launch in 2012, Results for America has successfully shifted over $2.6 billion worth of federal funds toward evidence-based policies and programs; built a large bipartisan Invest in What Works coalition, with more than 420+ leaders at the Federal, state and local levels; created a highly effective communications campaign that has raised the awareness and credibility of evidence-based policymaking; and, in partnership with Bloomberg Philanthropies, launched What Works Cities to support 100 mid-sized cities use data and evidence to improve lives. Now, Results for America is poised for new growth.
