Carnegie Corporation of New York, which was established by Andrew Carnegie in 1911 “to promote the advancement and diffusion of knowledge and understanding,” is one of the oldest and most influential of America’s grant-making foundations. A century after it began, the Corporation continues to invest in Mr. Carnegie’s passions:  international peace and education.  It is committed to bolstering a strong democracy through grants that promote educational reform for all children, a deeper understanding of the world, and the integration of immigrants like Mr. Carnegie into American life.  Research and publications that explore the Corporation’s priorities and its grantees work can be found at carnegie.org.

The Kohlberg Foundation reflects the individual and collective philanthropy of the donors, Jerome and Nancy Kohlberg. Broadly defined, the foundation works within three major categories: health and medical research, education, and the environment. There is an unfettered, roll-up-your-sleeves quality to their grantmaking that emphasizes moving things ahead. This foundation is sometimes like an organic farm stand. The produce may vary and several farmers may contribute — but the family’s values are fundamental. This is a family foundation.  More information about the foundation can be found at kohlbergfoundation.org.

The John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation supports creative people and effective institutions committed to building a more just, verdant, and peaceful world. In addition to selecting the MacArthur Fellows, the Foundation works to defend human rights, advance global conservation and security, make cities better places, and understand how technology is affecting children and society.

Park Foundation is dedicated to the aid and support of education, public broadcasting, environment, and other selected areas of interest to the Park family. Public broadcasting is a particularly meaningful recipient of funding because the Foundation had its origin in the world of communications. The Foundation supports public interest media that raises awareness of critical environmental, political and social issues to promote a better informed citizenry in the U.S. It supports quality, non-commercial media that is substantive, fair, and accurate. Program priorities include investigative journalism, media policy and public broadcasting.  More information can be found at parkfoundation.org.
