Annual Report

2015 Annual ReportAt Brookings, we believe that high-quality, independent research is critical to addressing the pressing public policy challenges of a complex, dynamic and, at times, dangerous world. Each year, Brookings produces an annual report highlighting our collective work and the impact it has had on the world.

The annual report has, since 1983, also provided an opportunity for us to thank the generous donors whose financial support makes our work possible, while also demonstrating our commitment to transparency. We are fortunate to enjoy support from a broad range of philanthropic individuals, corporations, governments and foundations that believe in our mission of authoritative, independent, and nonpartisan research. The reports also contain our financial statements, which document our sound financial footing and prudent fiscal management.

In addition to the information in the reports, a more detailed analysis of our overall funding is available below, and an eleven-year record of annual reports and financial statements is available on the right.
