The Surdna Foundation seeks to foster sustainable communities in the United States. Through investments and partnerships with nonprofit organizations, we break down the barriers that limit opportunities and create more prosperous and sustainable communities. Taken together, our investments build capacity of people, organizations and communities, spark innovation, and connect stakeholders.
