TO ME, GLOBAL POVERTY IS A HUMANITARIAN ISSUE. PEOPLE ARE DYING, AND WE CAN SAVE THEM, AND THAT OUGHT TO BE ENOUGH. william h. gates sr.

We are focused on results. Those that can be measured. And those measured in ways beyond numbers.

We see individuals, not issues. We are inspired by passion, and compassion for the wellbeing of people. Our methods are based on logic, driven by rigor, results, issues, and outcomes. Our innovation means trying new things, learning from our mistakes, and consistently refining our approach. Our strategies help us define our path to success, but our effectiveness is based in the aggregate power of our initiatives to impact holistic change.

WHEN I TRAVEL ON BEHALF OF THE FOUNDATION, I AM ALWAYS MOVED BY PEOPLE’S ETERNAL HOPE FOR A BETTER LIFE. jeff raikes, PAST ceo
