We want to ensure that every student—not just a lucky few—can get an education that’s tailored to their individual needs and supports every aspect of their development. And we want every teacher to be equipped with the tools and research they need to help get them there.
Luck is not a national strategy. We need to build strategies that take luck out of the equation for every person.
Across three core initiatives—Education, Justice & Opportunity, and Science—we pair engineering with grantmaking, impact investing, policy work, and advocacy to help accelerate the pace of social progress.
Justice & Opportunity
We're working to build a future that is more just, inclusive, and full of opportunity for everyone. We focus on three core issue areas—criminal justice reform, housing affordability, and immigration reform—and partner with frontline organizations leading the fight for change.
We support the science and technology that will make it possible to cure, prevent, or manage all diseases by the end of the 21st century. We foster collaboration between scientists and engineers, develop new technologies, and build support for basic scientific research.
CZI is composed of four funding entities: the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative, LLC (the main operational funding vehicle); the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative Foundation (a 501(c)(3) private foundation); the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative Donor-Advised Fund (DAF) at the Silicon Valley Community Foundation; and Chan Zuckerberg Initiative Advocacy, (a 501(c)(4) organization).
Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion
Engineering solutions to the scale of the issues we’re tackling requires fresh perspectives and diverse experiences. Our team’s strength is defined by our ability to bring a wide range of voices to the table—including those from historically marginalized groups. We are committed to maintaining a workplace where everyone is—and feels—welcomed, respected, supported, and valued.
