MPI is funded primarily through research grants from foundations.  We also receive funding from organizations, U.S. and international government agencies, corporations, and individuals. Their investment allows MPI to provide thoughtful, unbiased research and analysis of migration and refugee policies in the United States and internationally. MPI is able to disseminate policy-relevant material and engage a broader audience through their generous support.

Donors contribute to MPI's overall operations and research, including one-time and multi-year gifts. If you are interested in helping support MPI's work, please click here for information on how to get started.
