Our approach to giving
Our giving centers on issues in Criminal Justice, Health, Education, and Public Finance, and is guided by Evidence-Based Policy, Research, and Advocacy.
In January 2019, we launched a new strategy for Arnold Ventures focusing on achieving policy change in our core areas of Criminal Justice, Health, Education, and Public Finance using Research, Evidence and Advocacy as our tools. To do this, we support organizations that are aligned with our objective of maximizing opportunity and minimizing injustice. This support is awarded through three funding entities: Laura and John Arnold Foundation (LJAF), Laura and John Arnold Donor Advised Fund (DAF), and Action Now Initiative (ANI).
Our criminal justice giving is changing the way we think about prisons.
