What We Fund

Human Rights

AJA Foundation supports a wide variety of organizations globally that defend human rights, aid refugees and provide social services. Whether helping an individual or a particular community, we are particularly interested in combatting injustice and inequality by supporting solutions that address the root causes and/or address structural change.


Because ready access to clean water is a critical component of overall health and directly impacts many other aspects of society including education, employment, the economy and gender equality, AJA Foundation has a particular commitment to providing renewable clean water in rural African villages.


Our grantmaking in the health category supports organizations delivering high quality essential health services to those people unable to access or afford it. The majority of our focus is in developing countries.


Our education grantmaking focuses on helping students who have generally excelled in school but lack the finances, curriculum or support to reach their full potential. We support a variety of programs in the United States and abroad that make tutoring, mentoring, advanced coursework and scholarships available to deserving students from financially disadvantaged backgrounds.
