Laura and John Arnold Foundation (LJAF) makes strategic investments in criminal justice, education, evidence-based policy and innovation, public accountability, and research integrity. In addition to these core areas of focus, we identify and pursue other high-leverage opportunities through our Venture Development initiative. LJAF’s grants are aligned with our Philosophy of Philanthropy and support projects that are intended to produce sustainable and scalable solutions that result in transformational change.
