Ford Foundation

Created with gifts and bequests by Edsel and Henry Ford, the foundation is an independent, nonprofit, nongovernmental organization, with its own board, and is entirely separate from the Ford Motor Company. The trustees of the foundation set policy and delegate authority to the president and senior staff for the foundationís grant making and operations. Program officers in the United States, Africa, the Middle East, Asia and Latin America explore opportunities to pursue the foundationís goals, formulate strategies and recommend proposals for funding.

The Foundation believes that all people should have the opportunity to reach their full potential, contribute to society, and have voice in the decisions that affect them.

Development Orientation:
The foundation believes that the best way to achieve these goals is to encourage initiatives by those living and working closest to where problems are located; to promote collaboration among the nonprofit, government and business sectors; and to ensure participation by men and women from diverse communities and all levels of society. In our experience, such activities help build common understanding, enhance excellence, enable people to improve their lives and reinforce their commitment to society.

The foundation works mainly by making grants or loans that build knowledge and strengthen organizations and networks. Since Foundation's financial resources are modest compared with societal needs, it focuses on key problem areas and program strategies. Foundation's grant making focuses on reducing poverty and injustice; promoting democratic values; and advancing human knowledge, creativity and achievement.
