How we work
Our work is structured around three interwoven portfolios: Learning Minds, Learning Schools, and Learning Societies. We support brilliant minds, purposefully bringing them together in cross-sector collaborations to drive new ideas about child development and human learning. We support schools, producing valuable insights and sharing best practices they need to excel. We promote evidence-informed decision-making in public policy and corporate practices to generate system change.
... and why
Every child has an enormous capacity to learn and must be given an equal opportunity to thrive. This philosophy and ambition form the bedrock of the Jacobs Foundation’s work.
