Our centennial initiative is aimed at uncovering and addressing the challenges facing the world's poor and vulnerable people for the next 100 years. To do this, we are holding convenings throughout the world and engaging participants in producing strong ideas that create global impact. We are publishing a series of books that draw on our past to provide lessons for the future. We are engaging online in a network of innovative thinkers that will help us find new voices to lead on some of humanity’s most challenging problems. Most importantly, we will be making a series of grants as part of our Centennial in order to pursue the promising ideas that emerge from all of these activities even further.
We are publishing a series of six books over the course of our Centennial, each one organized around an essential and abiding challenge in philanthropy. Each publication offered readers insights into the extraordinary stories that have been at the heart of the Foundation’s work for 100 years.
