J.B. and M.K. Pritzker Family Foundation

J.B. and M.K. Pritzker Family Foundation

The Pritzker Family Foundation was founded in 2001 by J.B. and M.K. Pritzker with a commitment to and a focus on social and economic justice and equity. Each area of focus for the foundation was chosen because of enormous inequities in those systems and a deep desire to create more just and equitable outcomes. The Foundation focuses its grantmaking in three areas: early childhood, community health, and civil and human rights.

Every strategy pursued by the Foundation through the Pritzker Community Health Initiative, the Pritzker Children’s Initiative, and our Civil and Human Rights portfolio focuses on achieving equity and justice — from reducing racial disparities in birth outcomes to ending the HIV/AIDS pandemic to reforming the justice and immigration systems. While these are just a few examples, we know we can, should, and need to do more. In the latter part of 2020, we began work with an external partner to identify areas of opportunity to elevate and ensure our grantmaking more significantly advances equity and racial justice.
