About Us

About us

Stronger Foundations for Nutrition is the global philanthropic community for ending malnutrition.


We believe a nourished world is a stronger world and are bringing together a diverse network of private donors in support of true transformational change.


We support philanthropies in their efforts to direct funding towards the highest impact and most cost-effective nutrition interventions.


We deepen relationships between our members, encouraging coordinated action to raise malnutrition up the global agenda.


We streamline access to evidence through our Resource Center and other tools to make malnutrition understandable and actionable.

Our work is guided by senior leaders within the network, coordinated by the Stronger Foundations for Nutrition team.
