A MESSAGE FROM OUR CEO: Listening and words alone are not enough. To overcome our history of systemic racial barriers, we will bring renewed energy in working with our communities to address the underlying causes, and fundamentally change the trajectories of people's lives. Read our message from Wendy >

WE BELIEVE all people – regardless of their background – should have the opportunity to learn, take risks, and own their own success.

Yet, all the money in the world cannot solve problems unless we work together.

So, we first listen to the communities we serve, tap into our learnings and relationships, and bring everyone together…

… to build and support programs that improve education, boost entrepreneurship, and help our hometown of Kansas City thrive.

Our Founder

Ewing Marion Kauffman believed every person has the opportunity to be uncommon and take risks to achieve success.
