Established in 1999, the Howard G. Buffett Foundation (HGBF) is a private family foundation working to catalyze transformational change to improve the world and the lives of the most impoverished and marginalized populations.
We focus our funding in four main areas:
- food security;
- water security;
- conflict mitigation, resolution and post-conflict development; and
- public safety.
The Foundation does not accept unsolicited proposals and we typically do not provide general operating support.
December 31, 2045, is the final dissolution of the Foundation’s assets.
