Definitions

The Foundation for Public Affairs is a not-for-profit, charitable association (i.e., a 501c3) in the United States that serves as the research arm of the Washington, DC-based Public Affairs Council. Among the research it produces include annual and specialized efforts examining issues and topics of special interest to public affairs officers (aka PAO). Though governed by executives drawn from the Public Affairs Council’s executive committee, the Foundation has its own (research) advisory board. It is supported financially mainly by donations drawn from Public Affairs Council leadership and their organizations.
