John D. & Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation - Grants
MacArthur supports people and organizations working to address a variety of complex societal challenges. Our grants are generally long-term, strategic investments, focused on building evidence about what works and finding solutions to often intractable problems. While some foundations work on a small number of issues, MacArthur is a multi-purpose, international foundation with grantmaking in multiple fields that are often inter-related. MacArthur is placing a few big bets that truly significant progress is possible on some of the world's most pressing social challenges, including justice reform, global climate change, nuclear risk, and significantly increasing financial capital for the social sector. In addition to the MacArthur Fellows Program and100&Changecompetition , the Foundation continues its historic commitments to the role of journalism in a responsible and responsive democracy; and to the strength and vitality of our headquarters city, Chicago.
John Templeton Foundation Grants
In the charter establishing his Foundation, the late Sir John Templeton set out his philanthropic intentions under several broad headings. These Core Funding Areas continue to guide our grantmaking as we work to find world-class researchers and project leaders to share in our pursuit of Sir John’s dynamic, contrarian, forward-looking vision. A number of topics—including creativity, freedom, gratitude, love, and purpose—can be found under more than one Core Funding Area. The Foundation welcomes proposals that bring together these overlapping elements, especially by combining the tools and approaches of different disciplines.

Ford Foundation Grants
We believe in the inherent dignity of all people.

The foundation has recently shifted its grantmaking focus entirely on inequality.

The foundation will cut its support of several initiatives, including LGBT rights in the United States, direct cash transfers in Latin America, and micro finance.
