The Philantropy Roundtable

The Philanthropy Roundtable was established by the Bradley Foundation to help facilitate conservative grantmaking.

Adam Meyerson is the president the Philanthropy Roundtable. Meyerson is a member of the Adas Israel Congregation, co-editor of the Wall Street Journal on Management, former editorial writer for the Wall Street Journal, former executive of the Heritage Foundation, former managing editor of American Spectator, and husband to Nina Shea, the director of the Center for Religious Freedom at Freedom House.

The Philanthropy Roundtable is a national association of more than 600 conservative individual donors, corporate giving representatives, foundation staff and trustees, and trust and estate officers. Its Associates include donors who are involved in philanthropy on a professional basis, as well as individual donors for whom giving is a serious avocation.

"The Roundtable is founded on the principle that voluntary private action offers the best means of addressing many of society's needs, and that a vibrant private sector is critical to generating the wealth that makes philanthropy possible. Its work is motivated by the belief that philanthropy is most likely to succeed when it focuses not on grand social designs, but on individual achievement, and where it rewards not dependence, but personal initiative, self-reliance, and private enterprise - in other words, they have very explicit ties to groups like The American Enterprise Institute (board member Kimberly Dennis) and the Council on Foreign Relations (Vice Chairman Heather Richardson Higgins). They even have a board member who co-authored a book with William J. Bennett, the former Education Secretary under Reagan and Bush.
New Citizenship Project (also New Citizenship Project, Inc.) is a non-profit organization funded by large right-wing foundations. Founded in 1994, NCP initiated the Project for the New American Century, one of the key behind-the-scenes architects of the Bush administration's foreign policy. According to his senate biography, John McCain served as a president of NCP, "an organization created to promote greater civic participation in our national life."

NCP shares the same address and suite as PNAC. According to NCP's listing in The Right Guide, NCP and the Philanthropy Roundtable share the same phone number. The Philanthropy Roundtable's office is on the same floor of the same office building as PNAC and NCP.
