The Potomac Foundation is an independent non-partisan nonprofit research organization dedicated to improving the quality of public discourse and national policy formulation.
During its first quarter century, the Potomac Foundation made major efforts in the areas of Post-Cold War Defense Economics, National Industrial Competitiveness and China’s Military Rise.
For three decades it assisted the nations of Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union to become integrated with the West through preparation and entry into NATO, organized over one thousand training sessions for leaders from those countries, as well as hosted more than a dozen congressional visits to the region.
It was endowed in 1988 by the three founders of the BDM Corporation — Drs. Bernie Dunn, Dan McDonald and Joseph Braddock — to continue the tradition of public service.The Potomac Foundation continues to be financed through an endowment, contributions and foundation grants.
