The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation (BMGF) works with partner organizations worldwide to tackle critical problems in four programme areas. Their Global Development Division works to help the world’s poorest people lift themselves out of hunger and poverty. Their Global Health Division aims to harness advances in science and technology to save lives in developing countries.

Their United States Division works to improve U.S. high school and postsecondary education and supports vulnerable children and families in Washington State. Their approach to grant making in all four areas emphasizes collaboration, innovation, risk-taking, and, most importantly, results.
