The Arca Foundation works to further the dignity of all people.

The Foundation believes that a vibrant democracy requires an informed and engaged citizenry that has access to information and free expression. While the Foundation’s focus areas evolve over time, Arca supports innovative and strategic efforts that work toward these principles. Currently, the Arca Foundation supports organizations working to advance racial and economic justice across the U.S. and has a small portfolio of grants focused on advancing a more just and peaceful U.S. foreign policy.
