About Us

The Pershing Square Foundation (PSF) was established in 2006 by Bill Ackman and Karen Herskovitz to support exceptional leaders and innovative organizations that tackle important social issues and deliver scalable and sustainable impact across the globe. PSF has committed $400 million in grants and social investments across a number of fields, including health and medicine, education, economic development and social justice. Since 2019, Bill Ackman and Neri Oxman have served as co-trustees of the Foundation.

By investing in pioneering individuals, non-profits and mission driven companies who dare to re-imagine the possible, PSF has helped to bring about important breakthroughs — from cancer research and small scale agriculture to criminal justice reform and educational opportunities for young people in communities around the world.
