What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

The Bruderhof Foundation's programs include activities in the areas of education, international reconciliation, community service and publishing.

Education: Foundation programs extend from childcare and Pre-K centers to K-9 schools for over 700 children. The "Whole Child" curriculum of the Bruderhof schools affirms the unique gifts of each student and blends traditional academic subjects with vocational skills, arts, and humanities.

International Reconciliation: As violence continues in new and old hotspots worldwide, the Foundation is concerned that reconciliation and non-violent conflict resolution is promoted - whether in Israel, Northern Ireland or in schools in the United States. Through award-winning presentations, the Foundation advocates for a violence-free world in the classroom community and the global community.

Community Service: Service is a core element of Foundation philosophy, finding expression in:
-Disaster relief in the wake of terror attacks, hurricanes, floods, fire and earthquakes.
-Food bank contributions and emergency food distribution.
-Free dental and medical care for indigent and migrant workers.
-Weekly visits to local jails and prisons for counseling and handicraft training.
-Temporary housing for the homeless.
-Help with funding of capital improvements for housing, school and farms in the United States and abroad.
- Organize volunteers for international service projects in Africa, Pakistan, Thailand, Korea, Ireland, Mexico, Haiti and other countries.

Publishing: Since the 1960s the Foundation has operated The Plough Publishing House, publishing and distributing titles dealing with issues of Christian discipleship and community living, social justice, peace, prayer, family life and education, death and dying, and the power of forgiveness.
