Grantmaking

Grantmaking

In the spirit of Ewing Marion Kauffman, we seek to build inclusive prosperity through a prepared workforce and entrepreneur-focused economic development.

To create equitable, comprehensive, and sustainable change, we first listen to the communities in which we work, develop shared learning and knowledge, and bring people together. Through these collaborations, we champion ideas and support solutions designed to improve education, boost entrepreneurship, and help communities and individuals thrive.
