Pew works with philanthropists to make long-lasting, powerful, positive change—always based on solid research and tangible goals.

For 75 years, we have partnered to produce measurable results addressing the most pressing challenges of the day across the United States and around the world. Today, we work with individuals and foundation partners on a wide variety of conservation, public policy, and research initiatives—always focused on serving the public.


Our partnerships with philanthropists provide economies of scale and complementary expertise that enable us to act on ambitious challenges, design and implement solutions to structural problems, and build momentum for change. Whether advancing conservation, examining the impact of policies on taxpayers and communities, or providing information about relevant trends in society, we are stronger and more effective with partners at our side.

We welcome partnerships with individuals and institutions that share our commitment to serving the public. Here are some examples of our collaborative work.
