The Ford Foundation supports visionary leaders and organizations on the frontlines of social change worldwide. Their goals for more than half a century have been to: strengthen democratic values, reduce poverty and injustice, promote international cooperation and advance human achievement. Their headquarters are in the US and they have regional offices in Africa, Asia and Latin America.
APC is particularly appreciative of the programme support that the Ford Foundation provided from 1997 to 2000. The foundation also supported the APC council meeting in South Africa in 1997.
In 2001 and 2002 its general support for management systems and programmes continued. In 2006, the foundation provided core support to CIPP, and funded global advocacy on communication rights in 2003, 2004 and 2005.
