EVIDENCE-BASED PUBLIC POLICY.
Who We Are
Founded in 2010 by Laura and John Arnold, Arnold Ventures is a philanthropy dedicated to improving the lives of all Americans through evidence-based policy solutions that maximize opportunity and minimize injustice.
What We Do
We focus on broken systems where outcomes are falling short, incentives are misaligned, and the time is right for change. We fund research to better understand the root causes of problems and build the evidence about what works and what doesn't to inform policy solutions. We advocate for policy reforms at all levels of government and build durable, bipartisan coalitions to drive lasting change and impact.
How We Are Different
We believe philanthropy is uniquely positioned to take risks and make big bets in ways the public and private sectors are often unable or unwilling to do. We approach philanthropy as an engine for innovation that can help catalyze new solutions and advocate for public policies that maximize opportunity and minimize injustice for all.
Video 'We CAN Lower Health Care Prices'
The U.S. has more expensive health care than in any other country in the world, and health care prices are rising. Evidence suggests large hospital monopolies are a big part of the pricing problem. In the final video in a series on health care affordability, Arnold Ventures explores solutions for addressing the excessive prices paid to health care providers that ultimately drive higher health care costs for consumers, employers, and taxpayers.
Reporting on implementation of the Pretrial Fairness Act has been relatively balanced and evidence-based, setting a standard for newsrooms across the country.
