Impact Stories

Our strategic investments team partners with our colleagues who focus on grantmaking at the Gates Foundation to craft investment approaches that help accelerate solutions in global health and development, as well as U.S. education. We measure our success the same way our grantmaking partners do: Are we speeding up vaccine delivery? Connecting health or economic empowerment solutions to the people who need them most? Or providing resources that teachers tell us they need?

Featured below are stories that highlight the impact of our initial investments. These stories inspire us to continue striving for success with every investment.
