Open Philanthropy recommended two grants totaling $1,250,000 to Employ America for general support. Employ America makes the public and intellectual case for policies that support full employment and seeks to build a broad set of allies to further that goal. It produces research and analysis on the state of the labor market and current and potential macroeconomic policies and policymakers. Employ America was founded by Sam Bell, who has consulted for us and our grantee Fed Up.
This follows our May 2021 support and represents an “exit grant” that will provide Employ America with approximately one year of operating support. It falls within our focus area of macroeconomic stabilization policy.
