Welcome to The Joyce Foundation

­The Joyce Foundation invests in solutions to pressing economic and social challenges that influence quality of our lives, the vitality of our communities, and the fairness of our society. We focus on the Great Lakes region and have national impact.

We seek quality education for all children, expansion of economic opportunity, and a truly representative democracy that serves the public interest. We support strategies to reduce gun violence, clean up and restore our natural environment and enrich our communities with diverse, thriving arts and culture.

We move ideas to action, supporting the development, testing and advancement of new policies. We encourage innovation in the public systems that determine if policies work as intended. We serve as a resource to policy makers, providing insights gleaned from research, collaboration and the expertise of our people.

Founded in 1948 and based in Chicago, Joyce has assets of $950 million and distributes approximately $48 million annually.
