Laura and John Arnold Foundation (LJAF) makes strategic investments in criminal justice, education, evidence-based policy and innovation, sustainable public finance, and research integrity. In addition to these core areas of focus, we identify and pursue other high-leverage opportunities through our New Initiatives division. 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.

Grant Agreements

This page includes a listing of grant agreements executed between January 1, 2011, and September 30, 2018. The grant amounts listed will be paid based on the payment schedules established within the grant agreements. All payments are contingent upon a grantee’s full compliance with the terms and conditions of the grant agreement. Although we make every effort to provide an exhaustive, up-to-date listing of all grant commitments, we may occasionally delay disclosure of a grant due to special circumstances.
