Earning a Degree

Learn about our programs in the United States and South Africa told through the voices of the students.

We are committed to improving student performance and increasing access to quality education so that children and adolescents around the globe have improved opportunities for success.

One of our founders’ original goals for the foundation was to ensure that disadvantaged students have the same opportunity to get to and graduate from college or university.

Financial stability can help families break the cycle of poverty and ensure better health and education for their children.

Our goal is to improve the health and wellness of all children while building demand for healthy options.

Grants & impact investing

Working with innovative organizations around the globe, we seek to identify, test, refine and grow non-obvious solutions to big, obvious problems. Since 1999, we have committed $1.518 billion to non-profits and social enterprises in the United States, India and South Africa.

We believe that through this work, we can transform the lives of children living in urban poverty today and improve the future for every generation.
