Partners and Sponsors

Since its formal founding in 1999, through a grant from the William T. Grant Foundation, the FrameWorks Institute has recognized that solving our greatest social problems requires a collective effort and a shared understanding that communications as an empirical endeavor is essential. Our success is due to what FrameWorks calls “synergies of impact,” by which we mean collaboration among funders, activists, advocates, universities, and scholars. In less than 20 years, we have partnered with nearly 200 foundations, nonprofit organizations, government agencies, and coalitions to address climate change, race and equity, health, immigration, food systems, education, criminal justice, violence, and more.
