The Challenge

We live in a period of unprecedented progress — economic, technological, social — but not everyone shares in that progress. While many people have gotten ahead, too many people are falling behind.

A large group of social entrepreneurs is dedicated to understanding the conditions needed to ensure that people are empowered, contribute to their communities, and live meaningful lives. We aim to support them.

Focus Areas

  • Fiscal restraint
    Maximizing opportunity and minimizing liabilities
  • Regulation that works
    Structural reforms to reduce red tape
  • Workforce development and breaking barriers to work
  • Making housing more affordable
