We are guided by six core organizational values:
We are passionate about our work, the problems we must solve, and the well-being of the people and communities we serve. Fundamental optimism about the future drives our ambition and willingness to dream big, while the urgency of challenges that exist motivates our hard work, determination, and discipline.
We are honest, transparent, and guided by ethical decision-making. We strive to be responsible stewards of our philanthropic resources and accountable to our partners.
We strive for excellence in everything we do, from how we treat one another and collaborate with our partners to how we execute our work and respond to new challenges and learnings. We are committed to maintaining the highest level of professionalism, attracting the best and brightest to our team, and bringing out the best in one another. We are driven to execute effective, high-quality work using rigorous methodologies and with fidelity to best and promising practices.
We are passionate about shared success, trust, respect, and support each other, and embrace a collective working spirit. We recognise the power of creative collaborations with our colleagues, partners, and the communities we serve to ensure we identify and pursue the very best ideas and leverage these relationships for maximum impact.
We take calculated risks, experiment, commit to acting even in the face of uncertain outcomes, and learn from our failures. Because we understand that the future will look different from the past, we seek new kinds of data to guide our efforts, embrace innovation, and pursue market driven approaches that encourage individuals and communities to innovate for themselves.
We are relentless in our pursuit of sustainable and scalable social and economic impact, prioritise cost-effectiveness, and value an objective, rigorous, evidence-based approach to decision-making. In choosing projects to pursue, we identify the scope of the problem the project would address and compare the potential impact and monetary value of the project to the cost.
