You can help rethink, renew and rebuild Puerto Rico

The Center for a New Economy (CNE) is a nonpartisan, nonprofit, independent organization that exists at the cross-section of policy, business economics, and empirical research.

As Puerto Rico’s first and foremost Think Tank, CNE is helping chart an achievable economic transformation agenda for Puerto Rico. CNE’s work has been crucial in providing solutions to Puerto Rico’s most pressing economic development problems. For twenty-five years, CNE has relentlessly represented Puerto Rico’s best interests in San Juan and Washington D.C. Our track record of influence and impact speaks for itself and is unparalleled in Puerto Rico.

If you believe in fostering a locally-led reconstruction process; in boosting home-grown knowledge; in encouraging resourcefulness and collaboration; and in nurturing nonpartisan governance and accountability, then you are one with us at CNE.

CNE has never solicited nor received funding or contracts from the government. We are supported solely by a small and select group of primarily local supporters, including foundations, small individual donors, and business leaders.

Join the group of leaders and corporations that believe in the potential of Puerto Rico. 
With your support, we can achieve change for the island by driving impactful policies.

It is chartered as a 501(c)(3) charitable organization with the U.S. Internal Revenue Service and registered as a nonprofit corporation with the Puerto Rico Treasury Department.

Since its founding in 1998, CNE’s work has been entirely financed by donations from individuals and private foundations. The Center does not accept any funding from the government or from political parties.CNE’s views and its research agenda are set solely by its Senior Management with support from its Faculty. CNE does not engage in any work for hire. In order to safeguard the independence of the research staff in the pursuit of their studies, all fundraising efforts are separate and insulated from the research and policy work. Contributors to the Center are advised that their support will not in any way control, determine, or influence the conduct of particular investigations or the conclusions reached as part of those research endeavors. Given that the Center maintains a position of neutrality on political issues in order to uphold the intellectual freedom of the staff, interpretations or conclusions in CNE publications should be understood to be solely those of the authors and should not be attributed to the Center, to its directors, officers, other staff members, or to the individuals and organizations that support its research.
