Our Programs

Across our portfolio, we match our array of tools to each partner for greater effect. We deploy investments, grants, in-kind supports or a custom combination of these in response to their needs. Whether we’re partnering on youth development, human-centered learning, animal welfare, water sustainability or new models that close opportunity gaps, we center equity and justice in all we do — supporting individuals and ideas that can have a catalytic impact in their communities and on our society.

Together, these leaders are working towards a future in which more people have access to healthy, reliable drinking water.
