October, 2010Our mission challenges us to stay on the frontlines of social change.
It is a mission we embrace every day. It’s what drives us to seek out and support visionary leaders from around the world; inspires us to create and cultivate a network of imaginative individuals and organizations in service of the common good; and compels us to address economic, social and technological transformations with speed and agility.
Our new annual report explores how we stay on the frontlines. It highlights how we respond effectively to the most pressing social dynamics of today—including global economic uncertainty and unprecedented technological invention—while remaining committed to our long-term strategies and the values that have underpinned our work for nearly 75 years.We hope you will read this year's report and learn how, together with our visionary grantees, we are seizing the opportunities of today’s social transformations.
