Our Vision & Purpose

Our vision is to become a global catalyst for discoveries that contribute to human flourishing.

Our purpose is to enable people to create lives of purpose and meaning.

Our Mission

The John Templeton Foundation funds research and catalyzes conversations that inspire people with awe and wonder.

Our Impact

The work supported by the John Templeton Foundation crosses disciplinary, religious, and geographical boundaries. We fund work on subjects ranging from black holes and evolution to creativity, forgiveness, and free will. We also encourage civil, informed dialogue among scientists, philosophers, theologians, and the public at large.

Our grantees produce field-leading scholarship across the sciences, theology, and philosophy. From probing gravitational waves to updating the modern evolutionary synthesis, they have contributed to major discoveries in the basic sciences. Other grantees have opened critical new topics to scientific investigation, including prayer, gratitude, immortality, and imagination. In addition to supporting academic research, we fund a wide range of media — print, digital, broadcast, and film — to raise awareness about discoveries in ways that are clear and thought-provoking.
