What we do

We work to ensure everyone in the U.S. can learn, grow, and get ahead, regardless of race, gender, ethnicity, or family income.

Our world is more interconnected than ever. That's why our work in North America invests in research, innovation, policy, and advocacy that is designed to improve the lives of people.

U.S. Program strategies

Improving education and social and economic mobility are national challenges with local complexities. We know there are no “silver bullet” solutions. This is some of the hardest work we do at the foundation.
