Individuals Making an Impact | Social Entrepreneurs

The Charles Koch Foundation supports social entrepreneurs and principled leaders who help others improve their lives.

Everyone has the ability to learn, contribute, and succeed if they have the freedom and opportunity to do so. That’s why, more than 50 years ago, Charles G. Koch began supporting higher education. The Charles Koch Foundation, founded in 1980, continues this work by funding research and education that helps people expand their horizons, develop skills, and help others.
