Quality healthcare, critical infrastructure, viable income opportunities – these are basic needs that many of the world’s communities go without.
The A to Z Impact Foundation supports high-potential initiatives to help underserved populations access and improve the systems they need to live healthier, more prosperous lives.
We invest our capital and other resources in research, testing and piloting of new ideas, and taking small-scale projects to the next level.
We use grants, investment capital, and other support to nurture ideas and bring to scale early-stage innovations in healthcare, poverty-alleviation, and critical infrastructure.
We are open to unconventional financing methods and work with impact investors, social enterprises, and nonprofits alike.
We partner with fellow stakeholders and leverage our access in health and anti-poverty spaces to support initiatives and organizations that can deliver the greatest impact.
Our approach is practical and elastic, and we focus on outcomes, not procedure.
What We Are Looking For
We fund ideas, innovations, and programs that are designed to improve health and economic outcomes for underserved communities. Our scope is global.
We support scalable solutions for broad, lasting impact. Success will be in advancing the health and well-being of millions of people long after our role as funder is complete.
We seek partners who vigorously measure their impact. We need to know what’s working – and what’s not – so we can best help, learn, and improve.
We partner with organizations that facilitate systemic change. We aim to nurture new and more effective systems and approaches rather than subsidize those that are not working.
