Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation

Meeting of the Minds Sponsor

Established in the mid-1960s by the late entrepreneur and philanthropist Ewing Marion Kauffman, the Kauffman Foundation is based in Kansas City, Mo., and is among the largest private foundations in the United States with an asset base of approximately $2 billion.

We strive 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. We believe that opportunity lies in the fields of education and entrepreneurship — which our founder, Ewing Kauffman, saw as two ends of a continuum.
