Mission Statement



The purpose of the Michael and Alice Kuhn Foundation is to fund organizations that operate solely within the United States of America, and provide social change programs for the benefit of constituencies which have historically been denied access to social influence, economic power and resources.  The projects and programs of the grantees should involve and benefit low-income people, and should promote systemic change in societal values, institutions, laws and policies that perpetuate inequality, social injustice, and poverty. We also fund organizations that do research and advocacy for public policies that promote systemic change and work to eradicate inequality, social injustice, and poverty, as well as organizations that offer training opportunities for current and future leaders in the fields of community organizing and advocacy.


Special emphasis is placed on encouraging synagogues and other Jewish organizations to participate in these programs.


We also fund educational programs that encourage and enable students of low socioeconomic status and financial need to stay in school, enhance their cultural life, and obtain higher education.  Special emphasis is placed on students who are first in their family to attend institutions of higher education.
