The Rockefeller Foundation supports work that expands opportunity and strengthens resilience to social, economic, health and environmental challenges—affirming its pioneering philanthropic mission since 1913 to promote the well-being of humanity. The Foundation operates both within the United States and around the world. The Foundation's efforts are overseen by an independent Board of Trustees and managed by its president through a leadership team drawn from scholarly, scientific, and professional disciplines. Where They Work The Rockefeller Foundation has worked around the globe since their founding in 1913. Today, the Foundation works in regions where they can leverage theirassets, experience, and expertise to help realize Smart Globalization: Africa, Asia, and the United States. Yet, the Foundation does not limit its operations to these locations alone. They also support innovations and interventions in communities that provide new learning and build partnerships, alliances, and networks. INITIATIVES Each initiative is designed to accomplish specific goals within projected time frames, usually three to five years. They monitor and assess their grantees’ effectiveness regularly. These requirements enable the Foundation to shift tactics when necessary, seize unanticipated opportunities, and recalibrate their approach when a problem demands shorter- or longer-term investment. All their initiatives draw on the Foundation’s commitment to nurture innovation, pioneer new fields, expand access to and distribution of resources, and, ultimately, generate sustainable impact on individuals, institutions, and communities. -Developing Climate Change Resilience.
