We are a private grantmaking foundation working to move the needle on immigration, integration, and the well-being of receiving communities, in the United States and United Kingdom.

Our Focus

Legal Rights
and Protections

We promote policies that treat immigrants fairly, protect them against discrimination and mistreatment, and allow them to contribute to their new communities.


We seek to empower migrants and host communities and migrants to work together to create welcoming, vibrant, and just communities for newcomers and long-time residents alike.

Building Public

We seek to improve people’s knowledge and understanding of immigration, integration, and cultural diversity in society.
