The Robert W. Woodruff Foundation is an independent private foundation that seeks to improve the quality of life in Georgia by investing in health, education, economic opportunity and community vitality.
The Robert W. Woodruff Foundation supports well-established human services organizations that work to improve the quality of life for children and adults in need. Mr. Woodruff was dedicated to the welfare of others and gave generously throughout his life.
The Foundation’s investments in human services make up a small part of our average grants portfolio (see graph). We work with the State of Georgia to address challenges in child welfare, and we support the capital and capacity-building needs of well-established Atlanta organizations serving children, youth, adults and families. Applications for human services grants will also be considered by the Joseph B. Whitehead Foundation, which is dedicated to helping people in need in metro Atlanta, particularly children.
- Improvements in child welfare at the state level, with an emphasis on prevention and intervention strategies
- Youth development and academic enrichment programs for underserved youth in metro Atlanta that operate at scale with strong outcomes, community support and school- or district-level partnerships
- Capital and capacity-building priorities of organizations serving vulnerable populations, including the homeless, elderly and disabled
