Founded on September 10, 1977, the North Carolina Center for Public Policy Research is a 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to strengthening public policy through nonpartisan research, education, and community engagement.
For 40 years, the Center has provided nonpartisan research, evaluation, and analysis on the most important public policy issues facing our state, serving as a think tank, watchdog, and futurist. In October 2016, the Center affiliated with EducationNC, an innovative new media nonprofit. Combining the best new media practices with the depth of think-tank research, our work provides North Carolinians with a deeper understanding of the opportunities and challenges facing our great state.
EducationNC and the N.C. Center for Public Policy Research are related 501(c)(3) organizations. They share management and common board members and are brother/sister organizations for the purposes of the IRS Form 990.
