Carnegie Corporation

Mr. Carnegie dedicated his foundation to the goal of doing ‘real and permanent good in this world’ and deemed that its efforts should create ‘ladders on which the aspiring can rise.’ In our current-day grantmaking we continue to carry out this mission through programs and initiatives that address today’s problems by drawing on the best ideas and cutting-edge strategies that draw strength from deep knowledge and scholarship. History guides us and the present informs us, but our work looks always toward the future.
