Our Mission

To advance opportunity in the United States through transformational initiatives that empower those living in poverty, enrich and sustain our environment, and enable pioneering medical research.

Program Areas

Poverty

We strive to help low-income populations overcome barriers to opportunity. We support organizations that work to break the cycle of poverty by creating long term positive change for disadvantaged communities, specifically in the areas of health and chronic disease, family planning, and democracy.

Medical Research

Through an innovative collaborative model, we support the medical research of world-class scientists investigating chronic diseases from multiple perspectives. We also support brain research on learning and memory, particularly by studying the mechanisms that contribute to neurological dysfunction.

Environment

We focus on enabling healthy and resilient communities by enriching and supporting the environment because it measurably impacts the well-being of our human and natural systems.

Our Values

Equity

We operate through a lens of diversity, equity, and inclusion and we endeavor to understand the views of all.

Leadership

We bet on visionary leaders who can build strong organizations for the long term. We cultivate solid relationships with those leaders and strive to help them grow.

Impact

We have high standards for our own performance, as well as that of our grantees.

Boldness

We support initiatives that aim to create enduring and significant changes, often on a large scale.

Partnership

Through productive partnerships and collaborative grantmaking, we believe that we can achieve an impact far greater than we could acting alone.

Prevention

We believe that prevention is more meaningful than remediation.

The JPB Foundation carefully selects the organizations from which we solicit grant applications. Therefore, we do not accept unsolicited proposals. The Foundation does not fund attempts to influence legislation or other types of advocacy, and exclusively supports U.S.-based grantees.
