We are working to accomplish our mission of maximizing opportunity and minimizing injustice by investing in systemic solutions that will outlast our funding.

We support 501(c)3 organizations that are focused on criminal justice, education, health, public finance, research, and evidence-based policy. Funding decisions are made by our board of directors, which includes our co-chairs and president and CEO.

We do not accept unsolicited grant proposals nor do we provide grants to individuals; however, we periodically issue calls for projects within our areas of focus. Open solicitations are posted as Request for Proposals below. Prospective and current grantees should review our Guidelines for Investments in Research to ensure their proposals meet our standards for quality and transparency.
