Our Mission

photoThe Third Millennium Health Foundation is a private, not-for-profit foundation located in California. The Foundation was founded in the year 2000 as an initiative for unlearning intolerance in the new millennium. It makes grants all over the world and focuses on health, childhood education and human rights with emphasis on supporting social entrepreneurs among global youth.

The Foundation's principal goal is to support initiatives designed to promote health, tolerance and human rights, particularly among the young. Its work is focused on developing young children's understanding of and respect for the differences that exist among themselves, especially those related to culture, ethnicity, gender, race, and socioeconomic status. The Foundation's program builds on research findings demonstrating that gaining self-control and the ability to relate positively to others is developed in early childhood. In the field of human rights the support is mostly through fellowships in order to bring new leaders into the field.

The Foundation has adopted the following main objectives for its grantmaking:

  • Facilitate the further development of promising local educational programs that promote tolerance and respect for diversity in economically disadvantaged communities, particularly those in developing countries.
  • Invest in young leaders to become social entrepreneurs in the field of education and human rights.
  • Facilitate cross constituencies dialogue in the fields of education and human rights.
  • Form alliances with other funding organizations that have similar goals, in order to achieve maximum leverage from its grants and to take advantage of existing expertise.
