In Their Own Words

Ford Foundation makes grants that support the visionary people and organizations who work to challenge inequality in all its forms. It believes that social movements are built upon individual leadership, strong institutions, and innovative, often high-risk ideas. While the specifics of what it works on have evolved over the years, investments in these three areas have remained the touchstones of everything it does and are central to its theory of how change happens in the world.
