Our Focus

In both the US and UK, the two regions in which we work, immigration and integration are salient and controversial issues. While there are significant differences in each context, we encourage an active exchange between our staff, grantees, and co-funders across the two regions, and look for opportunities to share lessons. 

To maximize our impact, we make grants and partner with other funders in both the US and UK to advance three priorities:

Legal Rights and Protections:

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

Immigrant integration:

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

Building Public Understanding:

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