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.

The JPB Foundation marks a new beginning in the enduring philanthropic legacy of Jeffry M. and Barbara Picower. Born to ordinary circumstance and educated as a lawyer, the late Jeffry M. Picower used his exceptional skill as an investor to pursue a lifetime of giving. Jeffry and Barbara measured their success not by accumulated wealth, but rather by their ability to make the world a better place, particularly for those who were unable to do so for themselves. For decades, Jeffry and Barbara gave extensively to an array of medical, youth, and civic causes, with the goal of helping to create a better world. Among numerous high-impact grants made through The Picower Foundation, Jeffry and Barbara gave early backing to the Harlem Children’s Zone and organized the Picower Quality Childcare Initiative, a multi-partner program to improve the quality of child care within Palm Beach County. Their 2002 grant of $50 million to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, which created the Picower Institute for Learning and Memory, was then the largest donation the university had received from a private foundation.

2012 Democratic National Convention

The Democratic National Convention Committee is a not-for-profit organization responsible for planning and executing the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, North Carolina, the week of September 3, 2012. This convention is going to be the most open and accessible in history. It isn’t about political ritual or simply renominating the president, it’s about Americans coming together. Success depends on involvement at the grassroots, engaging the American spirit and enlisting people who want to put their shoulder to the wheel and change the country for the better. From format to funding, this convention will increase the influence of the grassroots and empower more Americans to become involved in the political process.
