In an inclusive economy, opportunity and prosperity are widely shared regardless of race, gender, ethnicity or caste. Yet across the world, rising inequality threatens greater economic inclusion and growth by stifling opportunity and undercutting social and economic progress.
This inequality is not inevitable. It is greatly influenced by labor policies and business practices, the strength of social protections, and the allocation of investment capital. It is when policies and practices are unevenly enforced, or fail to create a level playing field, that economies exclude people and discourage innovation. We help business, government, and civil society work together to foster inclusive economies that reduce inequality and promote growth and prosperity for everyone.
What we are working on
Our two strategies focus on increasing capital for social impact, and creating market and policy conditions that enable all families to thrive.
What we don’t fund
Our grantmaking does not support standalone workforce development programs, financial education programs, or pilots of individual financial products and services.
