Joyce Foundation funds the Proteus Fund's Piper Fund and is "a Chicago-based organization that promotes programs and strategies that will aid in reducing gun violence in the Great Lakes States".[1]

About

The mission of the foundation is found on its website:[2]

"The Joyce Foundation supports efforts to protect the natural environment of the Great Lakes, to reduce poverty and violence in the region, and to ensure that its people have access to good schools, decent jobs, and a diverse and thriving culture. We are especially interested in improving public policies, because public systems such as education and welfare directly affect the lives of so many people, and because public policies help shape private sector decisions about jobs, the environment, and the health of our communities. To ensure that public policies truly reflect public rather than private interests, we support efforts to reform the system of financing election campaigns."
