Our Vision, Mission, and Values
We empower people to reach their full potential.
The Steelcase Foundation has two mission-based grantmaking priorities, both of which highly value social justice:
- Our primary focus is quality, accessible public education.
- Our secondary emphasis is making our communities better places to live, work, and play through education, work, and cultural initiatives and opportunities. Priority projects fall into one of these areas:
- Art & Culture
- Human Service
We have a sense of responsibility to others and are committed to improving the human condition.
Partnerships are at the heart of success. Collaboration accelerates listening, learning and working together to achieve the best possible outcomes.
- Diversity & Inclusion
Organizations operate best when there is clear representation of the people they serve, at every level.
Our relationships are conducted with high integrity, respect and fairness.
Our work is our primary focus; our public presence is understated.
We are a passionate agent of innovation, encouraging risk-taking and new approaches to achieve desired results.
We support diligent, highly-responsive accountability and continuous improvement to achieve meaningful results, with lasting impact.
