Civic Change, Inc. is the successor organization to the Pew Partnership for Civic Change. A civic research organization, Civic Change, Inc. provides consulting and program support to communities, governments, foundations, and nonprofit agencies. We help clients identify and implement solutions and strategies crucial to making communities stronger.
The Pew Partnership for Civic Change was established in 1992 as a civic research organization with primary funding from The Pew Charitable Trusts. In 2004 the Partnership moved from an intermediary organization for the Trusts to a stand-alone nonprofit consulting firm as an administrative unit of the University of Richmond. It received funding from foundations, nonprofits, and governments. For more information about the history of the Pew Partnership, review this historical timeline. Civic Change, Inc. was established in 2009 as a nonprofit organization.
