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 individuals – 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 broad and diverse partners and grantees. By pursuing the big bets humanity needs, The Rockefeller Foundation is making opportunity universal and sustainable.

Our Vision

Our vision is to build resilience and equity for all. We believe that by investing in people, communities, and systems, we can create a future where everyone has access to the resources they need to thrive.

Our Approach

We are innovative trailblazers who seek bold, transformative change that promotes a healthier planet, makes opportunity universal and sustainable, and enables individuals, families, and communities to flourish.

To achieve our mission and vision, we take a comprehensive approach that includes four key areas:

  • Equity and Inclusion: We prioritize equity and inclusion in all of our work. We believe that everyone deserves a fair and just opportunity to succeed.
  • Data and Science: We rely on data and science to inform our strategies and solutions. We believe that evidence-based approaches are critical to creating sustainable change.
  • Innovation: We embrace innovation as a key driver of progress. We believe that by exploring new ideas and approaches, we can unlock new solutions to the world’s most complex challenges.
