Results for America
is the leading non-profit working to improve outcomes for young people, their
families, and communities by shifting public resources toward programs and
practices that use evidence and data to improve quality and get better results.
Beyond scaling individual programs, Results for America seeks to drive broader
systems change so that “investing in what works” becomes the new norm for
allocating public dollars.
Results for America is building on existing momentum
at the federal, state, local, and international levels, with a three-pronged
- Support select Government
leaders to successfully implement evidence-based funding
practices, increasing government effectiveness and transparency to improve
outcomes for their residents;
- Develop and drive
acceptance for Standards of Excellence in evidence-based policy and policy
implementation at the Federal, state and local levels;
- Catalyze a strong,
bi-partisan, cross-sector coalition of leaders who are strongly
committed to an “invest in what works” policy agenda and are willing to
use their time and resources to press government to use data and evidence
to make better budget, policy, and management decisions.
Since its launch in 2012, Results for America has successfully shifted
over $2.5 Billion of government funding to evidence-based programs; built a
large bipartisan coalition of Moneyball for Government
champions, with more than 120
leaders at the Federal, state and
local levels; created a highly effective communications campaign that has
raised the awareness and credibility of evidence-based funding; and, in
partnership with Bloomberg Philanthropies, launched What Works Cities to
support 100 mid-sized use data and evidence to improve residents’ lives. Now, after this tremendous start up period,
Results for America is poised for its next phase of growth.
