Established in 1999, the primary mission of the Howard G. Buffett Foundation is to catalyze transformational change using risk capital. We focus on the most impoverished and marginalized populations. We see the Foundation’s resources as scarce capital that can be deployed to create change in the most difficult circumstances and geographies.
We invest our funding in three main areas:
- food security;
- conflict mitigation; 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.
