Who We Are

The mission of the Rockefeller Foundation has remained the same since its founding in 1913 by John D. Rockefeller, Sr.: to "promote the well-being" of humanity. Moreover, the Rockefeller Foundation has, also since its founding, focused on addressing the root causes of serious problems, and on doing so around the world. As John D. Rockefeller said, "The best philanthropy is constantly in search of the finalities&emdash;a search for a cause, an attempt to cure evils at their source." This approach has produced such breakthrough work as the professionalization of public health, the eradication of yellow fever, the "Green Revolution" in Latin American, Asian and Indian agriculture, and the creation of public-private partnerships to develop promising new vaccines.

Now, as at our founding, we work to identify and solve some of the world's most pressing problems. Yet, while our mission has not changed, the world around us has, and we and our work must change with it, and are doing so.
