"Some months ago, faced with my own philanthropic dilemma, I began informally polling friends, sources and readers to get a sense of which organizations carry weight in both foreign- and domestic-policy negotiations. On domestic policy, the name that kept coming up was the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities. It leans left, but people on both sides admire its empirical rigor, focus on policy and fierce advocacy. It is widely acknowledged as having a voice in both the White House and Congress."
- Ezra Klein, The Washington Post
"We are proud to announce Center on Budget and Policy Priorities has earned our second consecutive 4-star rating. Receiving four out of a possible four stars indicates that your organization adheres to good governance and other best practices that minimize the chance of unethical activities and consistently executes its mission in a fiscally responsible way. Only 17% of the charities we rate have received at least 2 consecutive 4-star evaluations, indicating that Center on Budget and Policy Priorities outperforms most other charities in America. This 'exceptional' designation from Charity Navigator differentiates Center on Budget and Policy Priorities from its peers and demonstrates to the public it is worthy of their trust."
- Charity Navigator, May 2013
When you support the Center, you’re making tangible a difference in the daily lives of low- and moderate-income families. And now you can double the impact of your gift, thanks to a challenge from a major donor who has agreed to match dollar for dollar all funds that we raise from new donors and all increases over last year’s level from existing donors.
