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.

President's Corner

I Weep for the Children of DACA

When I heard the news, I wept. Attorney General Jeff Sessions was in the middle of announcing his decision to rescind DACA, the Obama-era program that has provided 800,000 young immigrants the opportunity to work and pursue an education without exposing themselves to the risk of deportation.

Our People

Our diverse board and staff, all devoted leaders, make our work possible. They work with and support our grantees, elevate their stories, and help nurture this movement.

Our History

Our tactics have evolved and our impact has grown, but our core mission and brand promise have never wavered: Ask. Listen. Act.

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.
