Established in 1999, the Howard G. Buffett Foundation (HGBF) is a private family foundation working to improve the standard of living and quality of life for the world’s most impoverished and marginalized populations. We look for opportunities where our funding is the catalytic capital that seeds sustainable, transformational change.
We focus our funding in three main areas:
- food security;
- water security; and
- conflict mitigation, resolution and post-conflict development.
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.
