    Rockefeller Foundation

    The Rockefeller Foundation’s mission to promote the well-being of people throughout the world has remained unchanged since its founding in 1913. Today, that mission is applied to an era of rapid globalization. Our vision is that this century will be one in which globalization’s benefits are more widely shared and its challenges are more easily weathered. To realize this vision, the Foundation seeks to achieve two fundamental goals in our work. First, we seek to build resilience that enhances individual, community and institutional capacity to survive, adapt, and grow in the face of acute crises and chronic stresses. Second, we seek to promote growth with equity in which the poor and vulnerable have more access to opportunities that improve their lives.

    In order to achieve these goals, the Foundation constructs its work into time-bound initiatives that have defined objectives and strategies for impact. These initiatives address challenges that lie either within or at the intersections of five issue areas: basic survival safeguards, global health, environment and climate change, urbanization, and social and economic security.

    The Rockefeller Foundation is supporting work to catalyze the field of Impact Sourcing. Impact Sourcing (IS) employs poor and vulnerable people with limited opportunity for sustainable employment as principal workers in business and IT outsourcing centers to provide high-quality, information-based services to domestic and international clients. The Foundation supports training for Impact Sourcing workers, Impact Sourcing business models and the enabling environment for Impact Sourcing to scale. They are also building a coalition of key stakeholders to push the field forward. IAOP and the Foundation collaborate around various initiatives in Impact Sourcing
