We have the capacity to address many of the greatest challenges of our time. Philanthropists have an important role to play in bringing about a better, healthier, more prosperous world for all. But it is time to rethink current philanthropic efforts – from planning to funding to execution. We must be more aggressive to achieve breakthroughs and permanently solve problems.

That’s the idea behind The Parker Foundation.

The Parker Foundation is committed to partnering with leading organizations that share our determination to effect large-scale change.

Our projects may take years or even decades, but they will be achievable in our lifetime.

Who We Work With

The Parker Foundation will work with leading organizations in our focus areas, and partners who share our resolution to have large-scale impact.
