Proven Partnerships


Words from our Partners

"I have an interest in technology and a passion for our oceans. Partnering with Pew, I was able to marry the two in an ambitious project to develop a global enforcement system to combat illegal fishing, not just in the U.S. but all over the world."

Lyda Hill, supporter of Pew’s global campaign to end illegal fishing

How We Work

US Capitol

Fact-based: We are dedicated to the power of facts and research, always digging deep into the data in search of quantifiable trends and metrics. We approach issues with a thorough analysis of the underlying problems, using evidence to inform our objectives and identify the risks and opportunities that may lie ahead.

Nonpartisan: We always take a nonpartisan, evidence-based approach. We bring together key stakeholders and link diverse interests in ways that allow us to pursue common goals, bridge divides, and build a shared path to success.

Results-oriented: We make big bets—wisely. We rigorously plan and design our projects to deliver measurable results, and we evaluate them regularly, making course corrections as needed so that our work achieves tangible results.
