About Compton Foundation

Established in 1946, Compton Foundation fosters positive and sustainable models of change. We are a family foundation based in the U.S. and working with a global perspective. Our new mission highlights a sense of urgency and a willingness to take risks in order to transform the way we live. Bringing forth a positive future requires innovative ways of understanding and naming the problems we face, as well as new methods for collaborating to solve them. To accomplish our mission we provide financial resources to galvanize the movement for progressive and democratic social change, and on October 31, 2017 our grantmaking totaled 5.2 million. Compton Environmental & Social Sustainability Policies: We make every effort to have our office operations align with our grant making program, from our investing policies to our LEED certified office building, green office supplies, and carbon offsets, we make a serious effort to reduce our footprint on the environment at Compton Foundation.
