The Annie E. Casey Foundation is a private charitable organization established in 1938 by Jim Casey and his siblings. They are dedicated to helping build better futures for disadvantaged children in the united states.
The mission of the foundation is to foster public policies, human-service reforms, and community supports that more effectively meet the needs of today's vulnerable children.
The grant making of the Annie E. Casey Foundation is limited to initiatives in the United States that have significant potential to demonstrate innovative policy, service delivery, and community supports for disadvantaged children and families.
Senay Ataselim-Yilmaz, Chief Operating Officer, Turkish Philanthropy Funds, writes that philanthropy often solves the very problems that stems from market failure. Some social issues, however, ¬†cannot be tackled by questioning the return on investment.
