The Kauffman Foundation provides access to opportunities that help people achieve financial stability, upward mobility, and economic prosperity – regardless of race, gender, or geography.

Our grantmaking, research, programs, and initiatives support the start and growth of new businesses, a more prepared workforce, and stronger communities.

We work in Kansas City and the surrounding states of Missouri and Kansas. We champion organizations and communities that test innovative solutions and seek to change conditions. We work nationwide through programs, research, and policy.
