The John Templeton Foundation (JTF) serves as a philanthropic catalyst for discoveries relating to the deepest and most perplexing questions facing humankind.

Its vision is one of infinite scientific and spiritual progress, in which all people aspire to and attain a deeper understanding of the universe and their place in it. It looks forward to a world where people are curious about the wonders of the universe, motivated to pursue lives of meaning and purpose, and overwhelmed by great and selfless love.

The John Templeton Foundation supports research on subjects ranging from complexity, evolution, and emergence to creativity, forgiveness, and free will.

It encourage civil, informed dialogue among scientists, philosophers, and theologians, as well as between such experts and the public at large.

In all cases, its goal is the same: to spur curiosity and accelerate discovery.

In order to catalyze such discoveries, JTF provide grants for independent research that advances the mission of the Foundation. Its grants for public engagement help people worldwide engage the fruits of that research and explore the Big Questions.
