The Rockefeller Foundation’s mission—unchanged since 1913—is to promote the well-being of humanity throughout the world. Today, we pursue this mission through dual goals: advancing inclusive economies that expand opportunities for more broadly shared prosperity, and building resilience by helping people, communities and institutions prepare for, withstand, and emerge stronger from acute shocks and chronic stresses. To achieve these goals, we work at the intersection of four focus areas—advance health, revalue ecosystems, secure livelihoods, and transform cities—to address the root causes of emerging challenges and create systemic change. Together with partners and grantees, The Rockefeller Foundation strives to catalyze and scale transformative innovations, create unlikely partnerships that span sectors, and take risks others cannot.

Mayors nationwide, from cities large and small, agree that housing availability and affordability is their most pressing concern and the top reason that people are moving away from their cities. Mayors are also deeply concerned by the consequences of climate change and agree that cities should play a strong role in mitigating the negative effects. At a time when cutbacks in federal and state funding threaten to adversely impact infrastructure and education, mayors are even willing to advocate for increased state and local taxes to close the budgetary gaps and enhance the quality of life for their constituents.
