Grateful for the opportunities, education, and innovative spirit of the United States that helped launch his own career, Mr. Wyss is committed to helping ensure that everyone has the chance to pursue their dreams and fulfill their potential. The Wyss Foundation works to achieve this goal by investing in programs and initiatives that expand opportunity.
The Wyss Foundation’s work to expand economic opportunity and empower communities includes:
- Expanding economic opportunity and reducing inequality, such as by promoting fair lending practices and policies that help families save and build wealth.
- Helping build a society where women are empowered and have equal opportunities.
- Supporting a democracy that is inclusive, fair, and compassionate, such as by ensuring humane treatment of refugees and immigrants.
The Wyss Foundation’s investments in these areas focus on helping develop lasting, innovative solutions. Our grantees include the United Way, Center for Budget and Policies Priorities, and the Center for American Progress.
