At the IDP Foundation, we are always looking for ways to maximize our impact. We work hard to find highly-effective, but underfunded programs that address clear needs in education – and if we can’t find the right program…well, we build it ourselves! This is the approach we took when creating the IDP Rising Schools Program.

In addition to providing a broad range of grants*, investments, and program development services with an educational focus, the IDP Foundation supports innovative thinkers, leaders and organizations that operate outside of the educational spectrum.

*Please note that the IDP Foundation is currently not accepting unsolicited grant requests.

The grants we have made have always facilitated further funding for each of the researchers we have supported. We see these grants as seed capital, investing in research that has the potential for widespread impact.
