Foundation Cares

Working Together in Our Local Communities

While the Gates Foundation works globally, we recognize that improving people’s lives often happens at the local level, where individuals take action in their own communities.

Our Foundation Cares program makes it easier for local NGOs and community organizations to connect with foundation employees and partners for opportunities including volunteering, site visits, speaking engagements, and board member matching. If your organization needs support in one of these areas, get in touch, and we will work to connect you with our employees or partners.

Working together in our global communities, we can solve our greatest challenges.

Looking to Connect?

Are you associated with a nonprofit or community organization looking to connect with foundation employees and partners? Please use our Write to Us form to  let us know if you’d like to host a foundation group for a site visit, share volunteer opportunities with foundation employees, or invite a speaker from the foundation to visit your group or organization.

Please note: We are only able to offer opportunities to engage with our staff and partners in the countries where we host physical offices.
