The Pew Charitable Trusts

About The Pew Charitable Trusts, an independent nonprofit, is the sole beneficiary of seven individual charitable funds established between 1948 and 1979 by two sons and two daughters of Sun Oil Company founder Joseph Newton Pew and his wife, Mary Anderson Pew. Honoring their parents’ religious conviction that good works should be done quietly, the original Pew Memorial Foundation was a grantmaking organization that made donations anonymously. The Pew Charitable Trusts is a global nongovernmental organization that seeks to improve public policy, inform the public, and invigorate civic life. Pew’s portfolio includes health, state, consumer, and environmental policy initiatives; arts and culture; and public opinion research. The Pew Charitable Trusts is driven by the power of knowledge to solve today’s most challenging problems. They are an independent nonprofit organization – the sole beneficiary of seven individual trusts established between 1948 and 1979 by two sons and two daughters of Sun Oil Company founder Joseph N. Pew and his wife, Mary Anderson Pew. From its first day in 1948, Pew’s founders steeped the new institution with the entrepreneurial and optimistic spirit that characterized their lives. As the country and the world have evolved, they have remained dedicated to the founders’ emphasis on innovation. Today, Pew is a global research and public policy organization, still operated as a non-partisan, non-governmental organization dedicated to serving the public. Mission Informed by the founders’ interest in research, practical knowledge and a robust democracy, their portfolio has grown over time to include public opinion research; arts and culture; and environmental, health, state and consumer policy initiatives. Their mission is to: - Improve public policy by conducting rigorous analysis, linking diverse interests to pursue common cause and insisting on tangible results; - Inform the public by providing useful data that illuminate the issues and trends shaping the world; - Invigorate civic life by encouraging democratic participation and strong communities. In their hometown of Philadelphia, they support arts and culture organizations as well as institutions that enhance the well-being of the region’s neediest citizens.
