The Special Opportunities Program gives the Foundation a measure of flexible funding with which to respond to important opportunities outside or across the Foundation’s core giving programs, or to develop new ideas and promote innovation in how the Foundation and its grantees operate.

Funds for Special Opportunities are used to explore or support: communications and media-related grants to raise the visibility of Joyce issues and grantees with policy makers, journalists, and opinion leaders; efforts to help Joyce grantees use new media tools for education and engagement; or, exploration of cross-programmatic innovations.
