As a founding board member of the Democracy Alliance in the early 2000s, Rachel Pritzker joined other donors to win hearts and minds for the progressive cause. Later, she moved away from electoral politics to found the Pritzker Innovation Fund. As we reported in a piece on Rachel’s work, its mission is to find innovative solutions to “wicked problems,” mainly to do with climate and energy.
The Pritzker Innovation Fund is guided by a strong belief in the power of new ideas and research to achieve change. Rachel Pritzker’s approach to grantmaking mimics, in a way, conservative efforts to bankroll policy thought leadership.
One major grant recipient is the Breakthrough Institute, a think tank Rachel has long been involved with, that focuses on addressing global environmental problems. She is also an adherent of “ecomodernism,” arguing that economic growth need not be at odds with environmental stewardship.more » « less

This data is compiled using OpenSecrets bulk data downloads. LittleSis analysts match federal campaign contributions given by individuals in our database using the donation matching tool.
Individual profile pages show giving information for the individual profiled; org pages show an aggregate analysis of giving information for individuals with positions or memberships at those orgs. Note that this information may differ substantially from data found at InfluenceExplorer or OpenSecrets, because it only includes donations for individuals in our database who have been donor-matched by an analyst.
