How our endowment works
Learn what makes us different from public charities, where our original endowment came from, and how—through careful stewardship of our assets—we will be able to keep our mission alive for years to come.
Good Neighbor Committee
Since 1996, the foundation’s Good Neighbor Committee has supported organizations and activities near our headquarters, in the Midtown Manhattan area of New York, that contribute to the neighborhood's civic spirit and vitality. The committee’s work strengthens our ties to our immediate neighbors and connects us to local organizations working on problems related to our mission.
This program has been so successful that some of our regional offices in Asia, Africa, and Latin America have formed their own Good Neighbor Committees.
