With an annual budget of $90 million, MDRC derives its revenues from a wide variety of sources. About 60 percent of MDRC’s funding comes from foundations, corporations, individuals, and other sources. The rest comes from federal, state, and city government contracts. 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 health and barriers to employment.
