Results for America (RFA) 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. Our mission is to make investing in what works the “new normal,” so that, one day, all government leaders use rigorous evidence and quality data to inform important policy and funding decisions. We believe that data-driven and evidence-based policy decisions could significantly increase the impact of the over $1 trillion that governments spend annually to advance economic mobility and racial equity.
Founded in 2012, RFA spent its first three years partnering with policy innovators to build the credibility of evidence-based policymaking, securing early and important wins in education, expanding its work to multiple levels of government and driving awareness and demand through carefully orchestrated education and communication campaigns. During its second phase (2015-2018), RFA worked to demonstrate the power of evidence-based policymaking in ways that resonate with an even broader universe of elected officials and policymakers. As part of its third phase, RFA has demonstrated that governments at all levels can make faster, more lasting progress in accelerating economic mobility for residents when they use evidence and data in decision-making. By creating specific issue-area wins, RFA will further cement support for evidence-based policymaking among all policymakers as the “new normal.”
RFA celebrated its 10th year anniversary in 2022 and is entering its next phase of growth. With this, RFA is seeking to improve internal planning processes, and further strengthen RFA’s culture in an increasingly hybrid/remote working environment.
RFA is looking for a deeply skilled and entrepreneurial individual to lead planning processes; develop and drive revised, intelligent meeting structures; and improve the flow of communications and decision-making practices and procedures across the organization.
