For our first annual fundraiser, Leaseable has selected Urban Institute as an organization that is aligned with our own mission of using data to drive decision-making. Among other policy areas, Urban Institute focuses on the fact that "the communities where people live can influence nearly everything in their lives" and seeks to investigate "the factors that shape the quality of life in American communities". Leaseable is committed to raising money for the Urban Institute to allow them to seize more opportunities to influence people and place through research and analysis.
More information about Urban Institute: Policymakers and the public look to the Urban Institute for spin-free facts, objective analyses, and the insight needed to address the nation’s social and economic policy challenges, expand opportunity, and secure the safety net. The Urban Institute builds knowledge and understanding of the nation’s challenges and proposes practical solutions. Skirting ideology and conventional thinking, we diagnose critical social and economic problems and figure out which policies and programs work best, for whom, and how. Our open-minded, evidence-based research helps policymakers allocate tax dollars wisely, reach those most at risk, and put public choices into context.
