ON-Lion Letter
The Sagamore Institute for Policy Research in Indianapolis has announced that Jay F. Hein, its founding president, is returning to that position in January 2009.  Hein helped found and lead the public-policy research and analysis organization, beginning in 2004. 

In August 2006, Hein was appointed by President George W. Bush to serve as director of the White House Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives.  In that capacity, he worked to implement the compassion agenda by engaging in public-private partnerships with faith- and community-based social-service organizations across the U.S. and around the world. 

In Hein's absence, Sagamore was led by former U.S. Attorney and Assistant U.S. Attorney General Deborah J. Daniels. 

Former U.S. Sen. and Amb. Daniel R. Coats, co-chairman of Sagamore's board of trustees, expressed admiration for Hein's work and welcomed him back.  "Jay Hein has been a leader in this nation's efforts to improve the lives of individuals throughout this country and the world," Coats said.  "His recent experience in the White House will help to raise Sagamore to a new level of influence in the world of public policy research and analysis as well as boost the Institute's efforts in supporting community and faith-based initiatives."

The Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation supports the Sagamore Institute.
