Our legacy starts here.
We bring a spirit of discovery, disruption and collaboration to the toughest challenges facing us today: wealth inequality and climate change. Based in Oregon, we support and invest in bold inquiry and partnerships that break through a decades-long stalemate around the biggest threats to our way of life and legacy.
Statement from President Obama: "I commend the Oregon Legislature and Governor Kate Brown for taking action to raise their state's minimum wage."
The Atlantic: "Oregon's Smart Approach to a Minimum Wage"

We seek out opportunities to accelerate broad-scale change in the areas of wealth inequality, climate change and open democracy.
We currently are focused on the housing crisis experienced by low and moderate income households in many cities. We look at this crisis through the lens of wealth inequality and are actively exploring entrepreneurial ideas for new solutions.
