We believe in the power of ideas and dialogue to effect meaningful change.
For more than 80 years, the Henry Luce Foundation has brought people together across boundaries to develop new insights that will help solve urgent challenges facing humanity.
Henry R. Luce and his family believed in the power of bold ideas in the hands of inspired and committed leaders. They understood that change depended on experiential knowledge, intellectual inquiry, and human connection. We honor their vision by investing in knowledge makers, seeding new ideas and approaches, fostering the next generation of leaders, supporting public scholarship, and creating opportunities for constructive dialogue and finding common ground.
We seek out projects that put knowledge in the hands of those who will use it to build a more just, equitable, and compassionate society.
