About The Glaser Progress Foundation
Glaser Progress Foundation (GPF) is a family foundation based in Seattle, Washington, created in 1994 by Rob Glaser, Founder and CEO of RealNetworks, Inc., the company that pioneered the delivery of audio and video content over the Internet. The Foundation implements the founder’s progressive agenda through leveraged backing of social causes and programs that reflect his intense activism and his personal and professional focus on continuous progress. Rob Glaser is the sole Trustee of the Foundation which also has a three-member advisory board and currently, an Executive Director and an Office Manager. Rob’s original vision for the Foundation was to work towards building a better future by improving our understanding and measurement of human progress. Underlying much of the Foundation’s work methodologically are core competencies in broadly defining appropriate measurements of human progress (e.g., alternatives to Gross Domestic Product), and emphasizing strategic communications and overall metrics in each investment area. To achieve its mission of creating a more just, sustainable, and equitable future, the Foundation has focused recently on four program areas: Health and Climat...e Change, Democracy Reform, Independent Media, and Measuring Progress. Program areas and resulting initiatives necessarily evolve based on the Trustee’s focused interest and strategy. The Foundation’s geographic emphasis is national and international. The Foundation employs two strategic investment approaches to achieve impact. The Foundation’s primary strategy takes the non-conventional approach of identifying gaps in sectors or organizational capacity and attempts to close those deficits through the development of its own independent, highly leveraged initiatives, strategies, and projects, including working with appropriate partners to achieve its goals. Some key examples include: The Nonmarket Accounts Program; the Access Project; the Progressive Branding Project; and the Health and Climate Change Initiative. The Foundation’s second, more traditional approach to philanthropic investment funds individual nonprofit organizations which have submitted proposals for general support or project grants. Examples of these include: Democracy Now!; Mother Jones; and B92. Since 1994, the Foundation has invested over $35 million in both nonprofit organizations and Foundation initiatives, with an average of $1.5 million in grants each year. The Foundation has an operating budget between $350K - $400K annually. The Foundation has remained small and nimble, with no more than three employees at a time, complemented by expert consulting support over the years, particularly assisting in development and implementation of the primary strategic investment approach. The small staff is responsible for researching, evaluating, implementing, and realizing the Trustee’s vision. This includes program work, asset management, grant evaluation, addressing legal issues, and the management of relationships with grantees, partners, consultants, and other donors. As the Foundation continues to take on critical issues of societal and global significance, the Foundation expects to continue to take direction and draw from the Trustee’s personal and professional expertise and relationships, with ongoing support from partners and outside experts, to iterate and develop deep understanding of critical areas where its investment can be highly leveraged to make a difference in assuring that our future is just, sustainable and equitable. The Foundation expects deep focus on Health and Climate Change and Democracy Reform as urgent and contemporary issues in the next few years.
