The Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation


Text below provided by sponsor:

The Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation was established in the mid-1960s by the late entrepreneur and philanthropist Ewing Marion Kauffman. Based in Kansas City, Missouri, the Kauffman Foundation is among the largest foundations in the United States with an asset base of approximately $2 billion. Its vision is to foster "a society of economically independent individuals who are engaged citizens, contributing to the improvement of their communities." In service of this vision, they focus their grant making and operations on two areas—education and entrepreneurship—which their founder, Ewing Kauffman, saw as two ends of a continuum.
