Carnegie Corporation of New York

Established in 1911 by Andrew Carnegie to promote the advancement and diffusion of knowledge and understanding, the Carnegie Corporation of New York is one of the largest American grant-making foundations and focuses on the issues that Andrew Carnegie considered of paramount importance: international peace, the advancement of education and knowledge, and the strength of American democracy. Grants promote a pluralistic, vibrant American democracy through the civic integration of immigrants, support for nonpartisan voter registration and education, and voting rights; American public education that prepares all students with the knowledge, skills, and dispositions they need to be active participants in a robust democracy and to be successful in the global economy; and Africa’s higher education sector through enhancing academic training, research, and retention in select countries of sub-Saharan Africa. Carnegie also supports work to build a more secure, peaceful, and prosperous world through independent analysis and action addressing critical global challenges.
