Featured Work

Access to safe water, sanitation and hygiene is fundamental to people individually and collectively. One of our newest WASH partners, PIVOT, is working in Africa to transform the way the world handles its waste. By treating waste like a resource that can be converted into renewable fuel, cities gain access to energy and achieve better sanitation.

Grants

Grant making is at the core of our work as a foundation. We give to impactful organizations that have the potential to create lasting social change in our chosen focus areas.

Impact Investing

We believe in putting more than grant dollars to work creating social change. We have over 10% of our assets committed to impact investing and are an advocate for the growth of this sector.

Partnerships

We can't do this work alone. Whether it is with fellow funders, corporations, or various affinity groups, partnerships enhance our learning and increase our impact.

OPERATING SUPPORT

We are uniquely positioned to provide the general operating support that our NGO partners need and to also support capacity building projects when appropriate.

Multi-Year Funding

Grants that extend beyond an arbitrary one-year timeframe often better align with the scope of project work and can reduce the development and administrative burden on the grantee.

Innovation

We strive to view each of our strategies with fresh eyes, always searching for the best way to achieve our goals rather than settling for the way that philanthropy has always been done.
