The Gates Foundation: Swing for the Fences

The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation an inspiration for community impact.

The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation focuses on tangible and intangible results to drive impact around the world.

We are focused on results. Those that can be measured. And those measured in ways beyond numbers.

We see individuals, not issues. We are inspired by passion, and compassion for the wellbeing of people. Our methods are based on logic, driven by rigor, results, issues, and outcomes. Our innovation means trying new things, learning from our mistakes, and consistently refining our approach. Our strategies help us define our path to success, but our effectiveness is based in the aggregate power of our initiatives to impact holistic change.

Who We Are, The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation

At the core of our foundation’s work is the idea that every person deserves the chance to live a healthy and productive life.

Why we swing for the fences

While the Gates Foundation works globally, we recognize that improving people’s lives often happens at the local level, where individuals take action in their own communities.
