UNGA2020: Path to Equitable Recovery

Affordable power. Equitable distribution of Covid-19 testing and contact tracing. Helping families put food on the table and making ends meet. The Rockefeller Foundation is determined to join others to prevent the loss of hard-fought progress on the Sustainable Development Goals because of this pandemic.

Solving Global Challenges with Lasting Impact


Our Mission

We improve lives and the planet, and unleash human potential, through innovation. We are dedicated to the principle that all men and women – dignified and resilient as they are – have the right to health, food, power and economic mobility. We seek to advance those goals with a better use of science and data and through collaboration with partners and grantees. By identifying and accelerating breakthrough solutions, ideas and conversations, The Rockefeller Foundation works to improve the well-being of people everywhere.


Our Commitments

For more consequential outcomes, we channel our resources and expertise into a finite set of endeavors to assure measurable and meaningful impact. Our work is focused on improving access to electricity, food, healthcare and economic opportunity. We do that through creative partnerships and innovative investments to extract more value from data and private capital.

End Energy Poverty We accelerate the delivery of reliable, renewable electricity to hundreds of millions of people in underserved, low-income communities worldwide.
Achieve Health for All We work to advance the fields of public health and medical science to improve outcomes for all people, everywhere.
Nourish the World We are working to create a more nutritious, equitable and regenerative food system.
Seize Upon Emerging Frontiers We aim to accelerate the impact of our programmatic work by applying impact investing, science, technology, and innovation to the greatest inequities in the world.

Getting to 30 & Beyond

We’ve gone from 1 million to 4.5 million tests per week in the U.S., but we’ll need to redouble our efforts to make it to 30 million tests per week and beyond in order to reopen communities and economies, and keep them open.
