The Henry Luce Foundation was established in 1936 by Henry R. Luce, the co-founder and editor-in-chief of Time Inc., to honor his parents who were missionary educators in China. The Foundation builds upon the vision and values of four generations of the Luce family: broadening knowledge and encouraging the highest standards of service and leadership. A not-for-profit corporation, the Luce Foundation operates under the laws of the State of New York and aims to exemplify the best practices of responsible, effective philanthropy.  The Henry Luce Foundation seeks to bring important ideas to the center of American life, strengthen international understanding, and foster innovation and leadership in academic, policy, religious and art communities.  The Luce Foundation pursues its mission today through the following grant-making programs: American ArtAsiaLuce ScholarsTheologyHigher Education; the Henry R. Luce Initiative on Religion in International AffairsPublic Policy; and the Clare Boothe Luce Program for women in science, mathematics and engineering.
