Ford Foundation

Ford Foundation believes in the inherent dignity of all people. Globally, too many people are excluded from the political, economic, and social institutions that shape their lives.

In addressing this reality, Ford Foundation is guided by a vision of social justice—a world in which all individuals, communities, and peoples work toward the protection and full expression of their human rights; are active participants in the decisions that affect them; share equitably in the knowledge, wealth, and resources of society; and are free to achieve their full potential.
