Wilder Research helps communities thrive by turning information into impact. 

Through research and evaluation services, we partner with organizations to measure and improve program effectiveness, identify needs and solutions, and make data-informed decisions that improve lives. As an independent research unit of the Amherst H. Wilder Foundation, we work with nonprofits, foundations, and government entities throughout Minnesota and the country

The need for good research, planning and data-based decision-making has never been greater.
