Who We Are

Marguerite Casey Foundation was founded in 2001 to help support a movement of low-income families advocating on their own behalf for change. We strive to bring humility and hope to our work. We believe that significant positive change is not only possible, but absolutely necessary.

Our Mission

Marguerite Casey Foundation exists to help low-income families strengthen their voice and mobilize their communities in order to achieve a more just and equitable society for all.

By the Numbers

See how much we’ve invested in the movement since our founding in 2001.


As this family-led movement grows, so does the need for changemakers who can bring their ideas, energy, and skills to the table.
