Who We Are
A Strategy Hub for the Fight against Division and Bigotry
The Foundation for Inclusion (FFI) is taking on just about the hardest problem there is: changing society to build cohesion and inclusion — and resist the forces that divide us.
Whether you’re conservative or liberal, an investor or a philanthropist, in business or in advocacy, progress on just about any issue you care about is at risk when your country is as divided as it’s becoming today.
How do you change contempt, bigotry, and division at mass scales?
You do it collectively and strategically.
We’re making that possible.
We're all in this together — Help us now!
History shows entire societies can change when small groups of people act collectively and strategically toward a shared goal. Changing deep-seated divisions, contempt, and bigotry in society as a whole might seem like an impossible fight. But the tools and techniques needed to win that fight already exist — we just need to pull them together and start using them! We've already started pulling them together. If we can raise just $60,000 by the end of June 2017, we can start making these advanced techniques available to fight the good fight as early as this summer!

What We Do
We discover and incubate powerful innovations, high-level strategies, and shrewd coalitions that build civil, peaceful, and inclusive communities and societies—at home, abroad, and online.
We collaborate with nonprofits, social enterprises, philanthropists, impact investors, communities, and multi-sector coalitions — as long as you’re serious about promoting social cohesion or defending disadvantaged and vulnerable groups, we’ll help you discover new and better ways to achieve your objectives.
We’ll use, retool, or develop advanced techniques — dynamic modeling and strategy design, rapid prototyping, a/b testing, behavioral nudging, collective-impact organizing, etc. — to help you build or redesign products, services, media content, and strategies in ways that measurably achieve social good.
Keeping a society together takes collective effort, and our three programs are designed to make collective strategies successful — by focusing, respectively, on the whole, the parts, and the gaps:
Collective Strategy: The Whole
Making implicit collective strategies explicit: How does your work fit in to the bigger picture?

Impact Incubator: The Parts
Helping nonprofits, social enterprises, and businesses discover their best contributions to social cohesion
> Learn more
Inclusion Incubator: The Gaps
Filling gaps in collective strategies with in-house initiatives and a social-enterprise startup incubator
> Learn more
FFI’s staff and principal advisers have the experience and expertise to retool private sector and social science techniques — a/b testing, dynamic modeling, rapid prototyping, etc. — to help nonprofits, social enterprises, and mass-market products and media live up to their potential as unifying forces in society. We use these tools with coalitions (to see the whole picture), with organizations (to strengthen each part of the picture), and in our own initiatives (to fill in the gaps). Tap or hover for more.
