We are not a “fee-for-service” organization that charges our government or NGO partners; instead, we receive funding from philanthropy. We also receive funding from the federal government sources, including the National Science Foundation, the National Institute of Justice, the Institute for Education Sciences, and the National Institutes of Health, in the form of peer-reviewed grants. Our role is to apply the science and let the data tell its own story.
Our Theory of Change
We design, test, and scale data-driven innovations to improve the public sector’s response to the dual challenges of America’s gun violence crisis and a criminal justice system that needs reform. We partner with philanthropic partners to provide seed funding to test these ideas. Once we have found proven approaches, we work to disseminate our results and direct public dollars toward innovations that work.

Our funders make our independent research possible.
We are thankful to our funders, without whom this work would not be possible.
