CPI is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit, tax-exempt research organization.  Contributions to the CPI are deductible for tax purposes.  Individuals, foundations, and corporations are eligible to contribute to CPI and there are no contribution limits. Federal and state regulations that apply to donations for election campaigns do not apply to donations to CPI.  Contributions to CPI are not limited by MSRB Rule G-37, the recently adopted SEC rule limiting political donations by financial service professionals.

We rely entirely on independent donations to fund our research, conferences, and other activities.  Donor support is therefore crucial to our cause.  We hope you will join us in our effort to improve Connecticut’s policy direction and help citizens stay informed and engaged in the political dialogue.
