The Foundation supports leaders and institutions working to achieve a biologically rich, sustainable world where all families can plan for their children and all children reach their potential. We work on the issues our founders cared about most. We also invest in efforts to learn from our work and increase the impact of our investments through targeted evaluation and communications grants.
Long-term goals and strategies guide our grantmaking across each of our program areas and their many components. In pursuing these goals, we continually monitor and adjust our strategies to accommodate for accomplishments and changes in the fields in which we work, and also in response to changes in the economy that affect our resources at the Foundation.
We seek to keep our operating expenses low, but our major goal is to be “right-sized” as we look to the future, and to be a professionally staffed, high-impact family foundation. Throughout our history, and into the future, we remain committed to our strategic goals, and to our grantees and the partnerships we have formed.
