The John D. & Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation supports creative people and effective institutions committed to building a more just, verdant, and peaceful world. In addition to selecting the MacArthur Fellows, we work to defend human rights, advance global conservation and security, make cities better places, and understand how technology is affecting children and society.
The MacArthur Foundation in Nigeria is one of four offices of the Foundation that are located outside of the United States. The others are in Mexico, India, and Russia.
Recognizing that MacArthur’s support is small compared to the needs of Nigeria and its people, the Foundation strives to encourage investment by other funders and to promote creative partnerships among those in the public, private and nonprofit sectors.
