Bloomberg Philanthropies works to ensure better, longer lives for the greatest number of people by focusing on five key areas: the arts, education, the environment, government innovation, and public health.
Encompassing all of Mike Bloomberg’s giving, Bloomberg Philanthropies includes his foundation, corporate, and personal philanthropy as well as Bloomberg Associates, a pro bono consultancy that works with mayors in cities around the world.
Mike has committed the vast majority of the profits from Bloomberg L.P., the global financial technology, data, and media company that he founded in 1981, to support the work of Bloomberg Philanthropies.
Bloomberg Philanthropies works to improve the lives of millions of people in more than 700 cities and 150 countries. In 2023, Bloomberg Philanthropies invested $3 billion around the world. Over his lifetime, Mike has so far given $17.4 billion to philanthropy.
