Our Focus

 

For more than 100 years, The Rockefeller Foundation’s mission has been to promote the well-being of humanity throughout the world.

Today, we pursue this mission through dual goals: advancing inclusive economies that expand opportunities for more broadly shared prosperity, and building resilience by helping people, communities and institutions prepare for, withstand, and emerge stronger from acute shocks and chronic stresses.

To achieve these goals, The Rockefeller Foundation works at the intersection of four focus areas – advance health, revalue ecosystems, secure livelihoods, and transform cities – to address the root causes of emerging challenges and create systemic change.

Together with partners and grantees, we strive to catalyze and scale transformative innovations, create unlikely partnerships that span sectors, and take risks others cannot – or will not.
