With more than 617 million children around the world who cannot read and do basic math, there has never been a greater need for imaginative ideas and inclusive, collaborative leadership in learning. Imaginable Futures, a global philanthropic investment firm, focuses on driving innovations that holistically support learners, from academics to lifeskills, and enable lifelong learning and lasting well-being for them, their families and their communities for generations.
MathTalk, which uses a mix of technology and math-focused installations, harnesses playful learning to reduce math anxiety and create positive math experiences for kids and their parents, particularly in communities with fewer educational resources.Learn More
Communities play a crucial role, especially during times of crisis. Partnering with Fundo Baobá, we distributed an emergency relief fund to support vulnerable families with young children in Brazil who are experiencing extreme challenges brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic.Learn More
Interruptions to education can have lasting implications — especially for the most vulnerable. Working with partners such as SHOFCO helps us to support communities and address the most pressing priorities at each step of the way.Learn More
Learning starts early, happens lifewide, and in today’s ever-changing world, must be a lifelong endeavor. Together with our partners, we are dedicated to giving every individual the opportunity to thrive. We focus our efforts on three critical periods of development — early years, school-aged years (childhood / adolescence), and adulthood, across Africa, Latin America and the United States — and we organize our investments, interventions, and innovations along this continuum. This generational approach widens and deepens our impact, strengthening learners, their families, their communities and ultimately, our world.
We have an opportunity to change the traditional approaches to learning and schooling — transforming inequitable systems into thriving opportunities for communities of learners worldwide. From our work with partners, we see new insights, networks, tools and approaches, that are leading the way for more people to realize the future they imagined. And, as lifelong learners ourselves, we commit to contributing our learnings, insights, and perspectives back to our community as we learn them.
