The Rose Foundation for Communities and the Environment was founded by Jill Ratner and Tim Little in 1992. The Foundation is dedicated to the memory of Rose Ratner, whose wit and wisdom were forged in the wards of Chicago over the course of 50 years of political activism. The Foundation is based upon the principle that environmental protection and community regeneration must go hand in hand and are inextricably linked to a healthy economy. The Rose Foundation fulfills its mission through direct advocacy and grantmaking programs. Rose currently manages over 15 separate grantmaking, donor-advised, contract, and direct project funds.
