HAVE EQUAL VALUE
we are impatient optimists working to reduce inequity
INSPIRE PEOPLE TO TAKE ACTION
TO CHANGE THE WORLD
OUR RESOURCES ALONE ARE NOT ENOUGH, SO WE WORK TO CHANGE PUBLIC POLICIES, ATTITUDES, AND BEHAVIORS TO IMPROVE LIVES.
We partner with governments and the public and private sectors, and foster greater public awareness of urgent global issues.
WORKING TOGETHER IN OUR LOCAL COMMUNITIES
We recognize that improving people’s lives often happens at the local level, where individuals take action in their own communities.
COMMUNITIES WE SUPPORT
Feeding the Hungry
to ensure that all students who seek the opportunity are able to complete a high-quality, affordable postsecondary education that leads to a sustaining career.
The Peterson Technology Foundation is committed to ensuring that all students have the opportunity to receive a high-quality education.
We have two programs that work in concert toward this goal: College-Ready Education, which aims to ensure that all students graduate from high school prepared to succeed in college and in a career; and Postsecondary Success, whose goal is to dramatically increase the number of young people who obtain a postsecondary degree or certificate with labor-market value.
Areas of intersection include practical approaches and policy strategies to better align K-12 standards—including the Common Core State Standards—with higher-education standards.
EMPOWER THE POOREST
ESPECIALLY WOMEN AND GIRLS,
TO TRANSFORM THEIR LIVES
We proudly commit to fighting discrimination against persons on the basis of:
THAT BY GIVING PEOPLE THE TOOLS TO LEAD HEALTHY, PRODUCTIVE LIVES, WE CAN HELP THEM LIFT THEMSELVES OUT OF POVERTY.
Every year, millions of people find ways to transition out of poverty.
by adopting new farming technologies, investing in new business opportunities, or finding new jobs. We know women and girls have a unique power to reshape societies. When you invest in a woman’s health and empowerment, it has a ripple effect, helping families, communities, and countries achieve long-lasting benefits.
