About Us

OUR MISSION


THE M. NIGHT SHYAMALAN FOUNDATION SUPPORTS THE GRASSROOTS EFFORTS OF EMERGING LEADERS AS THEY WORK TO ELIMINATE THE BARRIERS CREATED BY POVERTY AND SOCIAL INJUSTICE IN THEIR COMMUNITIES.

Our Story

Someone asked an Indian sage Ramana Maharshi, “how should we treat others?” The answer he gave was, “there are no others.”
While I came across this ancient Indian parable long after Night and I co-founded the M. Night Shyamalan Foundation in 2001, I realized it describes a philosophy that is at the center of why we do what we do.

Our Approach

The M. Night Shyamalan Foundation aims to empower communities so that they have the opportunity to lift themselves out of poverty and combat social injustice. We start by investing in their leaders.
We firmly believe that impactful change is driven by community leaders who have the fortitude, the character, and the cultural expertise to empower their communities to reach toward a bold vision for the future. We simply follow their lead.
