Ford Foundation

FORD Foundation believes all people should have the opportunity to reach their full potential, contribute to society, and have voice in the decisions that affect them.

They believe the best way to achieve these goals is to encourage initiatives by those living and working closest to where problems are located; to promote collaboration among the non-profit, government and business sectors; and to ensure participation by men and women from diverse communities and all levels of society. In our experience, such activities help build common understanding, enhance excellence, enable people to improve their lives and reinforce their commitment to society.

They work mainly by making grants or loans that build knowledge and strengthen organizations and networks. Since our financial resources are modest compared with societal needs, we focus on key problem areas and program strategies.
