A Force for Transformation
Our Approach and Current Priorities
Templeton World Charity Foundation supports the world’s best minds and promotes open-minded inquiries in a wide range of fields. We work with top institutions and leading experts from around the world.
The majority of our grants fall under specific priorities — portfolios of projects exploring a common set of aims. Each of these priorities relates to one of the stages of our strategic pipeline for innovation: Discovery, Development, and Launch.
