Major Foundations Aim to Address Big Ideas

We encourage everyone to check out this article from the New York Times. Major funders – such as the Ford and Rockefeller Foundations – are making new commitments to tackle the crucial social issues of our time, such as income inequality, criminal justice, and climate change. This represents a shift away from the traditional funding approach, where large foundations typically donate gifts of $10 million or more to hospitals, universities, or major cultural institutions. Given that these foundations are now looking to directly fund programs that address social change, this represents a major opportunity for burgeoning organizations with potential solutions, and The Unfunded List will be looking to facilitate connections that result in funding for the best ideas.
