Company Description

Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation work with partner organizations worldwide to tackle critical problems in four program areas. The Global Development Division works to help the world’s poorest people lift themselves out of hunger and poverty.

The United States Division works to improve U.S. high school and postsecondary education and support vulnerable children and families in Washington State. And the Global Policy & Advocacy Division seeks to build strategic relationships and promote policies that will help advance our work. The approach to grantmaking in all four areas emphasizes collaboration, innovation, risk-taking, and, most importantly, results.
