Our Supporters 2020

The Center for American Progress advances its mission to improve the lives of all Americans with the philanthropic support of generous individual, foundation, corporate, and other partners. We are proud to recognize the following supporters that gave $5,000 or more to further the Center for American Progress’ work during 2020.

In 2020, the Center for American Progress received more than 96 percent of its charitable contributions from individuals and foundations. Corporate funding comprised 3 percent of the budget, and foreign government funding comprised less than 1 percent.

Our policy work is independent and driven by solutions that we believe will create a more equitable and just country. Corporate donors are not permitted to remain anonymous, and corporate donations do not fund new research.
