With the intent to contribute to a more equitable, vibrant and sustainable world, the Garfield Foundation supports changemakers to deliver greater impact through systems understanding and networked action. This work is built on a set of core beliefs, including:

  • In the power of collective intelligence
  • Understanding whole systems offers greater insight for leveraged actions
  • Solutions to complex problems accelerate through thoughtful collaboration
  • Systems change is sustained only when it is inclusive
  • Experimenting, reflecting and learning informs effective strategies

The Foundation is collaborating with a team of practitioners from across the United States to develop new strategic learning strategies to deepen the philanthropic sector’s understanding of how to facilitate transformational change.

As a member of the design team, Kiley Arroyo is supporting the creation of this timely work.
