Initiatives. Initiatives are built around well-developed strategies for concentrated investments, focused on the long-term and achieving significant impact. Initiatives are characterized by a portfolio approach to grantmaking, and other engagements of the Foundation, to pursue ambitious, large-scale outcomes. Initiatives constitute about 80% of the Foundation’s grantmaking.
Program grants. Program grants are directly in service of the program theory of change and goals. Individual research and development grants explore new program strategies and new initiatives.
