Our Program Areas
Rooted in the life interests and last will of our founder, the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation pursues approaches that touch a diversity of people, places and needs. We invest in 11 program areas, each involves partnering with grantees, generating new knowledge, giving voice to issues and joining with others to achieve measurable impact. Following an organizational decision in May 2018, we will be slowly phasing out of four program areas. For more information, please visit our Transitioning Program Areas page.
