With an annual budget of nearly $70 million, MDRC derives its revenues from a wide variety of sources. About 60 percent of MDRC’s funding comes from federal, state, and international government contracts. The rest comes from foundations, corporations, universities, individuals, and other sources. MDRC uses these funds to support the work of its five research policy areas: K-12 education, youth and postsecondary education, families and children, low-wage workers and communities, and barriers to employment.
