They are focused on the areas of greatest need, on the ways in which they can do the most good.
From poverty to health, to education, their areas of focus offer the opportunity to dramatically improve the quality of life for billions of people. So they build partnerships that bring together resources, expertise, and vision—working with the best organizations around the globe to identify issues, find answers, and drive change.
They are focused on results. Those that can be measured. And those measured in ways beyond numbers.
They see individuals, not issues. They are inspired by passion, and compassion for the wellbeing of people. Their methods are based on logic, driven by rigor, results, issues, and outcomes. Their innovation means trying new things, learning from their mistakes, and consistently refining their approach. Their strategies help us define their path to success, but their effectiveness is based in the aggregate power of their initiatives to impact holistic change.
They work with partner organizations worldwide to tackle critical problems in four program areas. Their Global Development Division works to help the world’s poorest people lift themselves out of hunger and poverty. Their Global Health Division aims to harness advances in science and technology to save lives in developing countries. Their United States Division works to improve U.S. high school and postsecondary education and support vulnerable children and families in Washington State. And their Global Policy & Advocacy Division seeks to build strategic relationships and promote policies that will help advance their work. Their approach to grantmaking in all four areas emphasizes collaboration, innovation, risk-taking, and, most importantly, results.
