NIELSEN FOUNDATION

The Nielsen Foundation is a private foundation originally funded by Nielsen, a global data and analytics company. We envision a more equitable world where everyone counts. Our mission is to support organizations that give voice and opportunities to historically excluded groups and communities. Across our focus areas, the Foundation’s grantmaking is firmly grounded in our commitment to advancing diversity, equity and inclusion (DE&I).
