About the Klarman Family Foundation


The Klarman Family Foundation seeks to identify areas of unmet need and to advance solutions to addressing them. We believe passionately in the promise and importance of creative thinking, strategic leadership and strong organizations to help bring about change. Our intention as a Foundation is to help make measurable progress in improving the lives of others.

Our work is guided by the following principles and values:

·        We approach our work both with a seriousness of purpose and evaluative rigor, and also with an openness to tackle issues in new ways and the flexibility to make adjustments along the way. We approach our work with a sense of urgency and willingness to invest based on the opportunities to make a difference rather than the limits of an annual grant-making budget.

·        We believe that the preservation of democratic norms lies at the core of all of our work, and that a healthy democracy is crucial to all we seek to achieve.

·        We value acting in partnership with other funders. We view these relationships as opportunities to learn and leverage greater impact. 

·        We apply what we learn to improve our philanthropic practices and outcomes.

The Foundation’s grant making spans several areas of interest. The issues we are addressing are complicated, requiring new and creative thinking and persistence over time. As we are committed to learning and assessing our impact, these categories and our specific strategies within them will evolve. Our dedication to applying best practices in philanthropy will remain unchanged.
