Program Aims

The Luce Foundation currently provides limited funding for Public Policy projects. Grants in this area often reflect the interests of our founder, Henry R. Luce, who actively encouraged the development of public leadership.

Grants have supported orientation programs for new members of Congress, the study of the Presidency, and analysis of the judicial system. Each year the Luce Foundation approves several Public Policy grants to organizations that promote best practices in and knowledge about philanthropy.
