Foundation and Government

Timely, relevant, insightful. That’s what our foundation and government partners say about our work. That is why they give. Through the generosity of our supporters, CSIS is able to develop cutting-edge multimedia tools and publications, among other publications. Foundation and government support has also been instrumental in helping the Center launch commissions and similar vehicles by which to invigorate the policy dialogue and effect change. Project-specific grants, usually spanning a few months or longer, enable sustained attention to challenging research questions – often with the goal of producing rigorous analysis and recommendations that are widely disseminated to the policy community. Together, our partners ensure that fresh ideas and novel solutions are generated, all of which contribute effectively to the common good.
