The Citi Foundation supports the economic empowerment and financial inclusion of low- to moderate-income people in communities where Citi operates. We work collaboratively with a range of partners to design and test financial inclusion innovations with potential to achieve scale and support leadership and knowledge building activities. Through a "More than Philanthropy" approach, we put the strength of Citi's business resources and people to work to enhance our philanthropic investments and help improve communities.
We utilize a results-oriented measurement framework that informs the way we assess the impact of the programs we fund. Every grant is carefully tracked to identify ways to ensure success and understand what works and why. This framework helps us define more clearly the results we seek in each of our core focus areas, which include:
Financial Capability and Asset Building – Increases in the number of low- to moderate-income adults and/or youth who adopt positive financial behaviors and accumulate and preserve financial assets
Microfinance – Increases in the supply and use of financial products, supplied by microfinance institutions, that improve and accelerate the financial inclusion of low- to moderate-income individuals
Enterprise Development – Increases in the number of micro or small enterprises that provide new income generation and/or employment opportunities for low- to moderate-income individuals
College Success (in the U.S.) – Increases in the number of low- to moderate-income secondary school students who are meeting the academic, financial and social milestones to enroll in and complete postsecondary education
Youth Education and Livelihoods (outside the U.S.) – Increases in the number of low-income youth, ages 13-25, who complete secondary school, become employed, start their own income-generating business or obtain postsecondary education or training
Neighborhood Revitalization (in the U.S.) – Increases in the number of small businesses, affordable housing units or community facilities that contribute to the economic and/or environmental sustainability of low- to moderate-income communities
Disaster Response – Supporting preparedness, immediate response, and rebuilding efforts, that all contribute to the long-term economic recovery of communities
The Ford Foundation supports visionary leaders and organizations on the frontlines of social change worldwide.
We believe all people should have the opportunity to reach their full potential, contribute to society, and have voice in the decisions that affect them.
We believe the best way to achieve these goals is to encourage initiatives by those living and working closest to where problems are located; to promote collaboration among the nonprofit, government and business sectors; and to ensure participation by men and women from diverse communities and all levels of society. In our experience, such activities help build common understanding, enhance excellence, enable people to improve their lives and reinforce their commitment to society.
We work mainly by making grants or loans that build knowledge and strengthen organizations and networks. Since our financial resources are modest compared with societal needs, we focus on key problem areas and program strategies.
Created with gifts and bequests by Edsel and Henry Ford, the foundation is an independent, nonprofit, nongovernmental organization, with its own board, and is entirely separate from the Ford Motor Company. The trustees of the foundation set policy and delegate authority to the president and senior staff for the foundation’s grant making and operations. Program officers in the United States, Africa, the Middle East, Asia and Latin America explore opportunities to pursue the foundation’s goals, formulate strategies and recommend proposals for funding.
