Our Interest Areas

We make grants across three primary interest areas. Learn more about each one, and the grantees we work with, below.


We support research, platforms, and programs that offer everyone the skills, tools, and opportunities they need to continue learning and adapting, and that are open, accessible, and innovative.


We support research on the changing nature of work, programs that equip people with future-relevant skills and access to career pathways, and initiatives that are driving systems change and broadening opportunity.


We support work that advances physical and technological infrastructure, and helps individuals and institutions develop the resiliency they need in order to adapt to persistent cultural and technological change.
