Blue Meridian was launched by the Edna McConnell Clark Foundation to aggregate dollars in order to scale high-impact work focused on youth (ages 0-30). Blue Meridian will invest at least $1 billion in high-performing US nonprofits that can have truly national impact for economically disadvantaged children and youth. Blue Meridian plans to invest upwards of $100 million in select nonprofits—this level of investment in social change organizations is exceedingly rare. Partners include former Microsoft CEO and current owner of the Los Angeles Clippers Steve Ballmer, hedge fund manager and mega-philanthropist Stan Druckenmiller, the Sergey Brin Family Foundation, blue-chip foundations like Edna McConnell Clark (EMCF), Hewlett and Packard, and others.
