Celebrating and learning from our brilliant community

Creating conditions where all can participate, grow, and thrive

The Steelcase Foundation collaborates and connects resources with people and movements that advance, advocate for, and accelerate us toward a more just and liberated community.

Our primary focus is on increasing access to quality, public education, and cultivating communities that create conditions where children thrive.

We take an innovative approach to philanthropy

Our three community investment strategies advance the Foundation’s mission and are supported by our Guiding Principles to cumulatively move the community, sector, and Foundation closer to the vision where the inherent brilliance of our community is embraced, and efforts are focused on creating conditions where all can participate, grow, and thrive.
