For 20 years, we have been known as a rigorous, relevant, and responsive research and evaluation partner for foundations, intermediaries, and financial institutions to promote economic inclusion. Our aspirations and work on affordable housing, student debt, and many other issues have become even more relevant over the last few years, as families remain unable to climb the economic ladder despite their best efforts and the countless initiatives put in place. Our multidisciplinary team of academics and practitioners strives to empower community partners and policymakers with the evidence-based research they need to be effective in their work.

We depend primarily on external grants, contracts, and donations for support. Your tax-deductible gift to the CCC Opportunity Fund provides us with the flexibility to sustain and grow our mission, and helps us provide funding for students, special projects and events, consultations with nonprofit organizations, operational support, and more.

We ask you to be an active partner in our work. Every gift makes an impact.
