About MFAN

The Modernizing Foreign Assistance Network (MFAN) is a reform coalition composed of international development and foreign policy practitioners, policy advocates and experts, concerned citizens and private sector organizations. MFAN was created to build upon the bipartisan consensus that has emerged over the last decade that the U.S. should play a leadership role in achieving economic growth and reducing poverty and suffering around the world, and that we can play this role more effectively, efficiently, and transparently.

MFAN is dedicated to working with the Administration, Congress, and the development community to advance a reform agenda that will make U.S. development assistance and policy work harder for the American people and for people in developing countries. We believe that successful reforms will maximize the impact of our assistance, and will help to ensure support in the future among policymakers and the American people for the resources necessary to maintain development as a pillar of U.S. engagement.

More than 200 Endorsers Agree: Mr. President, Foreign Aid is WIthin Reach
