The Ford Foundation


Created with gifts and bequests by Edsel and Henry Ford, the foundation is an independent, non-profit, non- governmental organisation and is entirely separate from the Ford Motor Company. The Foundation's goals are to: strengthen democratic values, reduce poverty and injustice, promote international co-operation and advance human achievement.

Involvement in film

The JustFilms initiative at Ford Foundation seeks to support courageous filmmakers to reach a growing audience of engaged and socially conscious viewers. We believe that visual narratives play an indispensable role in the search for justice. They inspire new understanding, encourage civic dialogue and showcase the rich diversity of the human experience.


We can only do what we do because of organisations and individuals who support our work.
Thank you everyone.
