Guided by the belief that our community can prosper only if every member of it has an equal opportunity to succeed and thrive, AJF works with visionary leaders and organizations working to make our state better. We are passionate and honored to work alongside those on the front lines of our most pressing challenges.

In the 1930’s, A.J. Fletcher, a lawyer, decided to foray into a new arena – broadcasting. In his history as a business owner, he had a reputation for doing the things that had not been done before. A.J. Fletcher’s enthusiasm for breaking new ground continues at Fletcher Foundation today. We strive to be a leader and inspire others to use innovation and technology to achieve social change and progress.
