Globalization is the major trend of our time, the foremost driver of change in the world today, with consequences both beneficial and burdensome.
The Rockefeller Foundation attempts to harness the creative forces of globalization, supporting breakthrough solutions to 21st century challenges. This is smart globalization: ensuring that the opportunities unleashed by globalization are accessible to more people, more fully, in more places — and that poor and vulnerable people are equipped to seize them.

We at The Rockefeller Foundation know that we don't have all the answers.
We seek to promote the well-being of humanity by addressing the root causes of serious problems. We work to expand opportunities for poor or vulnerable people and to help ensure that globalization's benefits are more widely shared. We are one of the few institutions to conduct such work both within the United States and internationally.
We welcome your ideas about how to do this most effectively. We seek high-impact ideas that have the potential to make a difference in the lives of large numbers of poor or vulnerable people and we require some results from such ideas to be measurable within three to five years.
