MacArthur supports people and organizations working to address a variety of complex societal challenges.

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.

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.

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.
