The Eli and Edythe Broad Foundation works to advance entrepreneurship for the public good in education, science and the arts. We invest in the people, programs and institutions that are improving the human mind, body and spirit.
At The Eli and Edythe Broad Foundation, we make grants to promising people and organizations working to improve public schools, advance scientific and medical research and make the arts accessible to the broadest public. Alongside our grantees, we aim to achieve improved academic achievement for all students, greater public access to great art and architecture and groundbreaking advances in scientific and medical research.
Our grants team seeks out nonprofit organizations that are pursuing transformative ideas. In addition to offering financial support, we provide non-monetary assistance, serving as thought partners and helping our grantees go from early-stage implementation to achieving their goals. We establish benchmarks at the start of each grant to track progress, and we partner with our grantees to help them advance their work. Before we invest, we ask ourselves three questions that guide our decisions: Will this happen without us?
Will it make a difference in 20 or more years?
Is the leadership in place to make it happen?
