The Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation was established in the mid-1960s by the late entrepreneur and philanthropist Ewing Marion Kauffman.
The vision of the foundation is to foster a society of economically independent indviduals who are engaged citizens, contributing to the improvement of their communities.
