The Letters Foundation is a foundation of last resort that provides humanitarian grants to people experiencing a crisis through no fault of their own when no other options exist. These one-time grants provide a hand-up to individuals as they work to stabilize their lives.
Established by siblings Warren and Doris Buffett, the Letters Foundation reads and replies to letters from individuals living within the United States. We aim to honor the dignity of every person who writes to us and collaborate with grantees to assist in overcoming the barriers currently preventing them from moving forward in their lives. Doris’ lifelong commitment to individuals, and her kind but practical approach to problem solving inform all areas of grant making.
