We invest in big ideas in science and civil society. We support discoveries in their earliest stages that will ultimately improve human health, democracy and understanding. We seek out curiosity, collaboration, leadership and courage, knowing that the first steps in solving complex problems are steps into the unknown—and they are rarely taken alone.
We support early-career biomedical scholars doing pioneering research. We seed innovative approaches to fostering informed civic engagement. And we develop knowledge and networks to make philanthropy go further.
