Osprey Foundation

The Osprey Foundation strives to empower individuals and communities through education, health, economic opportunity and human rights in a sustainable way. We envision a world of equality, tolerance and equanimity.  Grant making is at the core of their work as a foundation. They give to impactful organizations that have the potential to create lasting social change in our chosen focus areas. They believe in putting more than grant dollars to work creating social change. They have over 10% of their assets committed to impact investing and are an advocate for the growth of this sector. They are uniquely positioned to provide the general operating support that our NGO partners need and to also support capacity building projects when appropriate. Grants that extend beyond an arbitrary one-year timeframe often better align with the scope of project work and can reduce the development and administrative burden on the grantee. They strive to view each of our strategies with fresh eyes, always searching for the best way to achieve our goals rather than settling for the way that philanthropy has always been done. They are engaged with populations around the world in their efforts to empower individuals and communities. Whether it is working to provide WASH services in Africa, increasing energy access in India, or promoting interfaith dialogue domestically, our work is truly global.
