A World Changed: 100 Years of Philanthropy

“I Never Thought,” a powerful short film commissioned to celebrate our Centennial, explores what American philanthropy has accomplished in communities around the globe in the past 100 years.

In the last century, philanthropy changed the world in ways many thought never possible. Our capacity to create transformative change has never been greater. We have more resources, more connections, more possibilities than ever before. And by leveraging the explosive capabilities of new technology, we have the power to ensure that diverse voices are included in solving the problems that humanity will face over the next 100 years. This is our opportunity, our obligation, our moment, and I have every confidence that together we will rise to meet it.

Judith Rodin, president of The Rockefeller Foundation
