We are a new kind of philanthropic organization focused on engineering change at scale. Our engineering team partners with issue experts across our Science, Education, and Strategic Partners to help bring technology to the table in new ways that drive solutions.


Our Technology Efforts

With large and expanding Science and Education Initiatives — we build tools with dedicated technology teams in addition to programmatic grantmaking, and we support our Strategic Partners by funding technology development.
Science
We build tools to accelerate biomedical research to make it possible to cure, prevent, or manage all diseases by the end of this century.
Learn more.
Education
We build tools that help teachers deliver better learning environments tailored to how kids learn best.
Learn more.

Infrastructure & Security

We build for the long term, which means investing in infrastructure and security from the beginning. By building stability, security, and shared solutions into our everyday work, we give our teams the solid foundation they need to focus on solving big problems.
