At the Heising-Simons Foundation, we are proud of the grants and partnerships we develop to advance the issues we care about, and we believe in being transparent about our grantmaking with our partners and the public.
As part of the content that is shared on this website, you can already search all of our grants and awards from the Foundation’s first grant in 2007 to the present, through our grants database. We also invite you to learn more about the Foundation’s grantmaking totals each year on our Year-at-a-Glance interactive infographic page.
