Jacobs Foundation

Our Focus The Jacobs Foundation invests in the future of young people so that they become socially responsible and productive members of society. In order to achieve this goal, children and youth must be given better opportunities for positive development and equitable access to education. Whatever their background, place of residence or family income, all children should have the chance to reach their full potential. Our Mission By 2020, we aim to have become the key organization linking excellent research with improving, globally, the development of children and young people under the age of 12. That means focussing our efforts on effective implementation, dialogue and advocacy.
