FUNDER SPOTLIGHT

Sarah Clement, Ph.D., Director, Character Virtue Development at John Templeton Foundation:

The John Templeton Foundation seeks to advance the science and practice of character, with a focus on moral, performance, civic, and intellectual virtues such as humility, gratitude, curiosity, diligence, and honesty.  Research we fund promises greater insight into how individuals cultivate character over time, including the identification of personal and environmental factors that influence development.  We realize that in order to achieve our goal of better understanding how individuals change over time, we need accurate and reliable measures of character.  Therefore, a portion of our research funding supports the development and dissemination of measures and assessments. We also provide support to organizations such as schools, religious institutions, and community organizations to develop, implement, and evaluate applied and translational research on character development.
