Thanksgiving is a time to gather with friends and family, share a traditional feast, and express gratitude for the freedoms we enjoy. We at Pioneer have much to be thankful for, most importantly for your trust in and support of the Institute. We are also grateful for the opportunity to organize informative events, engage high-profile scholars and experts to develop new ideas and reforms, and advance public conversations on our most pressing policy challenges.
In the coming months, keep an eye out for an exciting new documentary film raising awareness about the bigoted history behind opposition to school choice, the kickoff to our 2018 Better Government Competition (which, psst, is on college affordability), a book on how Massachusetts birthed the best charter schools in the country, lots of work on Proposition 80 (the graduated tax ballot initiative), and research on telemedicine, next steps for the MBTA, the future of financial services in Massachusetts, and much more.
We thank you for your support of our mission to advance a better educated, better governed, and more prosperous Massachusetts. For a limited time, the Institute has been offered a matching gift opportunity to support our education reform work. Gifts will be matched dollar for dollar up to $50,000 by December 15th! Please take advantage of this challenge grant and double your impact here.
We wish you a happy Thanksgiving!
