Kenneth and Anne Griffin Foundation
Founders' Message

The Kenneth and Anne Griffin Foundation believes that powerful ideas change the world. We identify and support pioneering leaders whose visionary ideas introduce new thinking and drive results. We focus on education, healthcare, and the arts because these pursuits form the core of a vibrant, creative, and productive society.

Education is the foundation of humanity’s future. Our country must do a better job educating its children, particularly in their early years, or the endless opportunities that are unique to America will face an inevitable decline.

Modern medicine is one of the great achievements of the 20th century. We support fundamental research in a number of fields related to healthcare that will improve the quality of life in the 21st century and beyond.

The arts are a celebration of humanity.  We embrace the arts as the pinnacle of our cultural heritage and the creative spirit that is the global legacy of humankind.

Since 1999, we have pledged more than $100 million to the leading innovators and intellectual entrepreneurs whose initiatives are bringing measurable change to society. Our hope is that the Foundation’s support enables these remarkable leaders to collaborate with others and realize their vision. We encourage you to learn more about our key areas of support.

We invite you to partner with us to inspire positive change around the world.
