Donations update: Support the Center for American Progress in its fight to change the country through bold, progressive ideas
Note from the CREDO Mobile team: This February, the Center for American Progress (CAP) is among three amazing groups that will receive a share of our monthly grant. Funding from the CREDO Mobile community will help CAP in its mission to shape the national debate, expose the hollowness of conservative governing philosophy and challenge the media to cover the issues that truly matter.

The Center for American Progress is an independent nonpartisan policy institute that is dedicated to improving the lives of all Americans through bold, progressive ideas, as well as strong leadership and concerted action. Our aim is not just to change the conversation but to change the country.
We believe we owe it to future generations to protect the planet and promote peace and shared global prosperity. And we believe an effective government can earn the trust of the American people, champion the common good over narrow self-interest and harness the strength of our diversity. We must chart a path toward building a stronger, more resilient nation that can lead the world and compete and cooperate within it.
CAP is uniquely positioned to help generate policy solutions that aim to achieve objectives which focus on five cross-cutting institutional organizational priorities, all of which apply as much internationally as domestically:
- Building an economy for all
- Restoring social trust in democracy
- Advancing racial equity and justice
- Tackling climate change and environment injustice
- Strengthening health
CAP has been around for 20 years and it has been an integral organization in the fight for the rights of the American people. Our position as the preeminent multi-issue progressive think tank, with an extensive network of allies and stakeholders, empowers us to serve as the leader and convener in the several policy areas we focus on.
As a multidisciplinary organization, we can develop and promote cross-cutting policies that examine solutions through a variety of lenses. CAP serves as a one-of-a-kind resource and strategy center for allies across the country, forging relationships with key constituencies, organizations and individuals necessary to create the networks critical to our success today and necessary to win the battles of the future. Our policy expertise and insight and access to the levers of federal power enable us to be bold in building political will.
