The Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation works in education and entrepreneurship to carry out the vision of Ewing Kauffman, who believed that everyone should have the opportunity to be uncommon and to take risks to achieve success.
The foundation strives to have a national impact and global reach by working together with communities around the country to create opportunities and connect people to the tools they need to shape their futures and be successful.
Ewing Kauffman worked to make Kansas City a major league city. The Foundation continues that legacy today and supports its vibrancy through investments in education and entrepreneurship. In addition, the Foundation complements that work through investments in key city assets and nonprofit effectiveness.
