ABOUT US

MISSION & VALUES

The Pew Charitable Trusts is driven by the power of knowledge to solve today's most challenging problems. We are an independent nonprofit organization – the sole beneficiary of seven individual trusts established between 1948 and 1979 by two sons and two daughters of Sun Oil Company founder Joseph N. Pew and his wife, Mary Anderson Pew.

From its first day in 1948, Pew's founders steeped the new institution with the entrepreneurial and optimistic spirit that characterized their lives. As the country and the world have evolved, we have remained dedicated to our founders' emphasis on innovation. Today, Pew is a global research and public policy organization, still operated as a non-partisan, non-governmental organization dedicated to serving the public.

Informed by the founders' interest in research, practical knowledge and a robust democracy, our portfolio has grown over time to include public opinion research; arts and culture; and environmental, health, state and consumer policy initiatives. Our mission is to:

Improve public policy by conducting rigorous analysis, linking diverse interests to pursue common cause and insisting on tangible results;
Inform the public by providing useful data that illuminate the issues and trends shaping our world;
Invigorate civic life by encouraging democratic participation and strong communities. In our hometown of Philadelphia, we support arts and culture organizations as well as institutions that enhance the well-being of the region's neediest citizens.

HOW WE WORK

Fact-Based and Results-Focused

Pew applies a rigorous, analytical approach to improve public policy, inform the public, and invigorate civic life. As the country and the world have evolved, we have remained dedicated to our founders’ emphasis on innovation. Today, Pew is a global research and public policy organization, still operated as an independent, non-partisan, non-profit organization dedicated to serving the public.

Our Priorities

Informed by the founders’ interest in research, practical knowledge and public service, our portfolio includes public opinion research; arts and culture; civic initiatives; and environmental, health, state and consumer policy initiatives.

Investment Philosophy

Our goal is to make a difference for the public. That means working on a few key issues, with an emphasis on projects that can produce consequential outcomes, foster new ideas, attract partners, avoid partisanship or wishful thinking, and achieve measurable results that serve the public interest.

Approach

From basic research to technical assistance and advocacy, the foundation of our work is careful planning; a consistent focus on facts, science and data; strong partnerships; and a commitment to stewardship, innovation, and measurable results.
