Grantmaking: Focus on Impact
Since our inception, we have awarded more than $1.4 billion in grants globally through our grantmaking programs and Humanitarian Prize work. In doing so, we have cultivated long-term projects and partnered with organizations whose efforts are aligned with our program strategies. This proactive approach helps us maximize effectiveness and impact.
Throughout 2015, we funded, supported and collaborated with many grantees to alleviate human suffering. Learn more about the work taking place in each priority area.
