Future Perfect seeks to tell stories about the world’s problems — problems that are big and neglected, and that most people in the US don’t hear about nearly often enough. These are problems where tremendous progress is possible with just a bit more resources and attention.
It’s a project by Vox’s writers and editors to carve out a space, away from the regular news cycle, to cover and think about crucially important issues that are currently undercovered.
Since its founding in 2018, Future Perfect has been able to pursue its mission thanks in part to philanthropic and foundation support, as well as financial contributions from readers.
We continue to seek new and innovative ways to fund the work we’re doing and ensure the health of Future Perfect for years to come. If you are interested in supporting Future Perfect with a grant or large gift, please contact us.
We are grateful for all contributions to Future Perfect (though we should note that contributions are not considered charitable donations). Future Perfect prizes its editorial independence, and all editorial decisions are made separately from fundraising and commercial considerations.
Future Perfect thanks the following donors for their support since our launch in 2018:
- Rockefeller Foundation (2018-2019)
- James McClave (2020)
- Animal Charity Evaluators (2020-2021)
- BEMC Foundation (2021-2023)
Thanks to support from the BEMC Foundation — a grant-making organization committed to outstanding charities and causes promoting high-impact opportunities for saving and improving lives throughout the world — Future Perfect will be expanding its operations. We will be bringing in our first class of fellows starting this fall. We’re planning on adding more staff in the months ahead. We’re gearing up for greater collaboration with Vox Video and for an expansion of the Future Perfect podcast in 2022. Stay tuned!
Vox also accepts general financial contributions of any amount. If you’d like to help support Future Perfect and Vox in that way, please go here to make a contribution.
