California Budget Challenge
Next 10 launched a June 2011 updated version of their popular nonpartisan budget balancing tool at budgetchallenge.org. Try your hand at solving the state’s fiscal woes today!
Next 10 is an independent, nonpartisan organization that educates, engages and empowers Californians to improve the state’s future.
California was founded by pioneers driven by big dreams and unafraid to face difficult challenges. Like many of us, they came to California to create a better life for themselves and their families. While this legacy of the California dream continues today, many of us are concerned that the future will not be as bright as our children deserve.
Next 10 is focused on innovation and the intersection between the economy, the environment, and quality of life issues for all Californians. We create tools and provide information that fosters a deeper understanding of the critical issues affecting all Californians. Through education and civic engagement, we hope Californians will become empowered to affect change.
We call ourselves Next 10 because we are not here for the quick fix. Our sights are set on joining with others to improve the state over the next ten years, and the ten years after that. The decisions we make together will affect California’s economy, environment and quality of life for years to come. Together, we can create the brighter future we all want for ourselves and our children.
Next 10 was founded and is funded by venture capitalist and philanthropist F. Noel Perry.
