FORD Foundation There is no justice without disability #DisabilityDemandsJustice Video Series The FORD Foundation is an independent organization, led by a distinguished board of trustees whose 16 members hail from four continents and bring leadership and expertise in a wide range of disciplines. Today we are stewards of a $16 billion endowment, making $500 million in grants around the world every year. Led by Darren Walker, our 10th president, they remain committed to our enduring mission—and to our legacy of bold, creative support for social change. We believe in the inherent dignity of all people. But around the world, too many people are excluded from the political, economic, and social institutions that shape their lives.
