Earlier this year, inspired by the need to find new ways to tackle entrenched problems, our CEO Jean Case announced the Case Foundation’s intention to Be Fearless in all that we do. In the tradition of the some of the greatest social movements of our time, we’re looking to join with our partners to be bold, take risks and “fail forward.” And we want you — the changemakers, the do-gooders, the funders and the connectors — to join us on this journey too!

In the last few months, we’ve been working with our partners to scour the landscape and define what it means to be fearless, and outline a clear set of values that are at the root of every fearless approach to creating change. And, we’re excited to share them with you in just a few days!

On Monday, June 4, our co-founders Jean and Steve Case will be interviewed by noted author, historian and CEO of the Aspen Institute, Walter Isaacson, about the Case Foundation’s 15 years in philanthropy and our current journey to Be Fearless. You’ll also hear from a distinguished group of our dynamic — and fearless — partners, including the Honorable Mark Warner, U.S. Senator from Virginia, Tom Tierney, founder and chairman of the Bridgespan Group and Barbara Bush, CEO and co-founder of Global Health Corps.

Are you ready to Be Fearless? If so, please join us for a live, online discussion about what it means to Be Fearless, to share your thoughts, and to pledge to Be Fearless with us.
