Center for American Progress

Philanthropic Activities

The Center for American Progress (CAP) is an independent nonpartisan policy institute that is dedicated to improving the lives of all Americans, through bold, progressive ideas, as well as strong leadership and concerted action.  The organization develops new policy ideas, challenges the media to cover the issues that truly matter, and shapes the national debate. With policy teams in major issue areas, CAP can think creatively at the cross-section of traditional boundaries to develop ideas for policymakers that lead to real change.  Since 2012, Robert  Roche has served as a member of the organization’s Board of Trustees, an esteemed group of advisors who act as a sounding board and source of ideas for CAP and CAP Action.
