Since 1936, the William T. Grant Foundation has remained dedicated to understanding human behavior through research, the original goal of our founder, William Thomas Grant. We are—and always have been—deeply committed to supporting research that is practical and impactful. As a private grantmaking institution, the Foundation funds high-quality empirical research, with the ultimate aim of improving the lives of young people ages 5 to 25 in the United States.
