About RESULTS

RESULTS and RESULTS Educational Fund are sister organizations that, together, are a leading force in ending poverty in the United States and around the world.

We create long-term solutions to poverty by supporting programs that address its root causes — lack of access to medical care, education, or opportunity to move up the economic ladder. We do this by empowering ordinary people to become extraordinary voices for the end of poverty in their communities, the media, and the halls of government. The collective voices of these passionate grassroots activists, coordinated with grass-tops efforts driven by our staff, leverage millions of dollars for programs and improved policies that give low-income people the tools they need to move out of poverty.

RESULTS originally stood for an acronym developed by Founder Sam Daley-Harris that captured the founding principles behind the work we do to build the political will to end the worst aspects of poverty, and in RESULTS' earlier years, hunger:

Responsibility for
