Incorporated in 2006, the Center for European Policy Analysis (CEPA) is a tax-exempt, non-profit, non-partisan, public policy research institute that operates under tax section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Service. CEPA relies on private donors and partners who believe in our mission.
Funding for CEPA comes from a broad mixture of private and public sources, including foundations, individuals, the U.S. government and corporations. Foundation grants or individual donations are used for general funding or projects that correspond with the mission of the organization. CEPA uses corporate funding for restricted projects, including conferences, seminars and meetings. U.S. government grants are for specific projects approved by the contracting federal agency. CEPA does not accept foreign government funding. However, CEPA does accept in-kind contributions for venues and catering from foreign governments for joint projects, such as our U.S.-Central Europe Strategy Forum. CEPA is compliant with all public rules governing non-profits.
