Sectors We Fund

Civil and Human Rights

“The Universal Declaration of Human Rights was a bold and clear commitment that power would no longer serve as a cover to oppress or injure people.”

Jimmy Carter, Former US President

We support organizations which fight for immigrants, racial justice, reproductive rights and more to protect and expand fairness, equity and freedom through community engagement, building power, policy advocacy, and impact.

Climate Change

“What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make.”

Dr. Jane Goodall

Global climate change has already had observable effects on the environment. Glaciers have shrunk, ice on rivers and lakes is breaking up earlier, plant and animal ranges have shifted and trees are flowering sooner.

Effects that scientists had predicted in the past would result from global climate change are now occurring: loss of sea ice, accelerated sea level rise and longer, more intense heat waves.

Environmentalists say that there are more and more frequent sharp changes in weather, storm winds, hurricanes, tornadoes, and abnormally high and abnormally low temperatures. According to experts, the cause of these phenomena is the global climate change.

Disaster Relief

“While natural disasters capture headlines and national attention short-term, the work of recovery and rebuilding is long-term.”

 Sylvia Mathews Burwell

We support the mobilization of a full range of resources that strengthen the ability of communities to withstand disasters and recover equitably when they occur. Let’s create a world where the impact of disasters is minimized by thoughtful, equitable and responsible recovery for all.


“Education breeds confidence. Confidence breeds hope. Hope breeds peace.”


Education can put people on a path towards good health, empowerment and employment. It can help to build more peaceful societies. And the benefits of girls’ education extends to their own children who are often healthier and more educated because their mothers went to school.

Evidence shows that, on average, each additional year of education boosts a person’s income by 10% and increases a country’s GDP by 18%. Some researchers estimate that if every child learned to read, around 170 million fewer people would live in poverty.

Gun Violence Prevention

“We need commonsense measures, gun control measures, that save lives. I think that it is important that we keep the firearms out of the hands of the mentally ill and criminals and terrorists. And I also think, by strengthening our background check system and expanding mental health treatment, we can do that as well.”

Catherine Cortez-Masto

Gun violence touches every town in America. For too long, life-saving laws have been thwarted by the gun lobby and by leaders who refuse to take common-sense steps that will save lives. But something is changing.

Nearly six million mayors, moms, teachers, survivors, gun owners, students, and everyday Americans have come together to make their own communities safer. Everytown starts with you, and it starts in your neighborhood. By introducing evidence-based solutions in every town, we can end gun violence.

Health and Well -Being of Women and Girls

"Women are leaders everywhere you look—from the CEO who runs a Fortune 500 company to the housewife who raises her children and heads her household. Our country was built by strong women, and we will continue to break down walls and defy stereotypes."

Malala Yousafzai

Evidence shows that as indicators for women and girls’ well-being improve, economies will grow, poverty rates will decline, and the environment will benefit.

However, women and girls are constrained by socio-cultural, structural and policy barriers that impede their rights.

We invest in organizations and programs to advance meaningful social, cultural and economic change in the lives of women.

Health Care

“It is health that is the real wealth, and not pieces of gold and silver.”

Mahatma Gandhi

We support organizations that are changing communities through prevention, prenatal care, disease control, vaccinations, mobile education and through understanding their health issues.


“The bosom of America is open to receive not only the Opulent and respected Stranger, but the oppressed and persecuted of all Nations and Religions; whom we shall welcome to a participation of all our rights and privilege.”

George Washington, First US President

We stand for a world in which refugees find welcome, safety, and freedom. We support organizations that rescue people whose lives are in danger for being who they are. They protect the most vulnerable refugees, helping them build new lives and reuniting them with their families in safety and freedom. They advocate for the protection of refugees and assure that displaced people are treated with the dignity they deserve.

Middle East Peace

“A solution of two national states - a Jewish state, Israel; an Arab state, Palestine. The Palestinians are our closest neighbors. I believe they may become our closest friends.”

Shimon Peres

We support a path to two states for Israelis and Palestinians. We support pro-Israel, pro-peace efforts to promote US policies that embody our deeply held Jewish and democratic values and that help secure the State of Israel as a democratic homeland for the Jewish people. We believe that only a negotiated resolution agreed to by Israelis and Palestinians can meet the legitimate needs and national aspirations of both peoples.

Working in the American political system, in the Jewish community and with others with whom we share core values, we advocate for diplomacy-first American leadership and policies that advance justice, equality, peace, and democracy in Israel, in the wider region and in the United States as well.
