ICYMI: Charles Koch and Brian Hooks on Empowering Others

On August 13, Charles Koch, founder of the Charles Koch Foundation, and Brian Hooks, president of the Charles Koch Foundation, co-wrote an op-ed in the Washington Post calling for a bottom-up approach to today’s challenges, “empowering people of all walks of life to help find and enact solutions.”

Koch and Hooks continued, “When it comes to fixing the country’s biggest problems, there is no quick fix — no single solution from on high. Rather, there are countless solutions that depend on empowering people across the country to do their part.”

The Charles Koch Foundation funds research and education that helps people expand their horizons, develop their skills, and help others. We believe that the most pressing issues facing society today are too big for any one group to solve, and that’s why we’re proud to be a part of the Stand Together Philanthropic Community.
