STAYING APART TO STAY TOGETHER. At the Kauffman Foundation, our mission remains as we work with our communities to find our way through this challenging time. Here is the latest on our response to the COVID-19 crisis >

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.
