Rockefeller Foundation

From our very first grant—to the American Red Cross more than a century ago—through to today’s vast array of initiatives, The Rockefeller Foundation has built a reputation as a trailblazer that convenes unlikely partnerships and sparks innovations for transformative change. Our list of greatest achievements is long. We founded the modern field of public health, developed a vaccine to help control yellow fever, and worked to combat hookworm in the U.S. and malaria in Italy, funded urban visionary Jane Jacobs, and catalyzed a Green Revolution. The Rockefeller Foundation is the initiator of the PTFI Project.
