Invest in Delaware's Future

... | 11/28/2018

No other organization in Delaware does what we do at the Caesar Rodney Institute: provide in-depth, non-partisan analyses of public policy issues and advocate in Dover for better policies_OLD related to economics, the state budget, energy issues and education policy. Every day CRI makes a difference in Delaware. You can help by investing in the CRI policy Center that focuses on the issues of most concern to you.  CRI is a 501(c)(3) , so your contribution is tax deductible to the fullest extent permitted under the law.     Providing Delaware Students the Best Education   Led by Jim Hosley, our Director of the Center for Education Excellence, we are pushing for Delaware to adopt Education Savings Accounts so lower income and special needs children and their families in poorly performing schools can choose to send their child to a school suited for them at no extra cost to them or taxpayers. We have launched a new school board project to make sure concerned citizens interested in protecting charter schools and improving education run for their local school board. We must make sure our school boards function well and follow fiscally sound policies_OLD.   Yes! I would like to invest in improving our childrens education with a contribution to CRI of $50  $150  $250    $500.

Dave provides analysis of complex energy issues, such as the Bloom Energy project, works to prevent your tax dollars from being used for energy schemes that cause electric bills to rise, thereby discouraging growth in Delaware businesses. Energy policy in Delaware no longer goes unchallenged: David Stevenson and CRI  makes sure that your voice is heard.
