Jean and Steve Case created the Case Foundation in 1997 to reflect their family’s commitment to giving back. Over the years, they have used their investment capital, networks and experience in pursuit of a singular mission – to invest in people and ideas that can change the world.
Established by digital pioneers Jean and Steve Case, the Case Foundation invests in people and ideas that can change the world. For nearly two decades, they have focused on creating programs and investing in people and organizations that harness the best impulses of entrepreneurship, innovation, technology and collaboration to address urgent social challenges.
They strive to Be Fearless in the approach to social change. They don’t limit themselves to any one sector or issue, rather they partner across industries and search across issues to identify opportunities where innovation is needed to address an urgent challenge. They find and fund efforts that break down barriers and divisions, challenge the status quo and offer new solutions to ever-evolving problems, all in pursuit of one bold mission – investing in people and ideas that can change the world.
Their work generally falls into three pillars: Revolutionizing Philanthropy, Unleashing Entrepreneurship and Igniting Civic Engagement. The interplay among the three pillars is at the heart of everything they do and where they believe real impact can be made to improve the human condition, reduce social and economic inequalities that erode the social fabric and build partnerships and communities that ground peaceful and prosperous nations.
The Case Foundation believes the world needs more fearless approaches to social change, so they take risks on new ideas and approaches, and partner across sectors with people and organizations that share the fervor to engage citizens and change the world for the better, today. They don’t limit themselves to any one sector or issue, but instead let a set of core values drive all of the ventures.
