Peterson Philanthropies is a network of nonprofit, nonpartisan organizations engaging in a range of initiatives to strengthen the current economic and democratic foundations of the United States, and build a brighter future for the next generation. The organizations support initiatives to foster substantive, fact-based solutions and actions that improve the policymaking process, economy and everyday life of Americans. Peterson Philanthropies encompasses the mission-driven work of its three organizations:

  • The Peter G. Peterson Foundation, founded in 2008 to raise awareness and accelerate action on America’s long-term fiscal challenges to improve our economic future;
  • The Peterson Center on Healthcare, founded in 2014 to make affordable healthcare a reality for all Americans by finding, validating and scaling solutions that deliver better health outcomes at lower cost; and
  • Peterson Solutions Fund, founded in 2022 as a 501(c)4 to support a range of policy advocacy activities to stabilize America’s fiscal outlook, improve the performance of our healthcare system and strengthen the pillars of our democracy.
