About the Job



The Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation (Kauffman Foundation) was established in the mid-1960s by the late entrepreneur and philanthropist Ewing Marion Kauffman. Based in Kansas City, Missouri, the Kauffman Foundation is among the thirty largest foundations in the United States with an asset base of approximately $2 billion. While striving to have national impact and global reach, the Foundation is deeply committed to Kansas City, as evidenced by work on initiatives that reach into neighborhoods and enrich the community and quality of life in the region. For more information about the Foundation, please visit the website at www.kauffman.org.

Though all major foundation donors were entrepreneurs, Ewing Kauffman was the first such donor to direct his foundation to support entrepreneurship, recognizing that his path to success could and should be achieved by many more people. The Foundations vision is to foster a society of economically independent individuals who are engaged citizens, contributing to the improvement of their communities.

In service of this vision, and in keeping with its founders wishes, the Foundation focuses its grant making and operations on two areas: advancing entrepreneurship and improving the education of children and youth. Significant entrepreneurship programs include Kauffman Founders School, Kauffman FastTrac, 1 Million Cups, and several other important initiatives. The Foundation supports key educational programs such as the Ewing Marion Kauffman School, Kauffman Scholars, Teach For America and Leading Educators, among others. The Foundation also conducts and supports research and policy programs aimed at helping to develop effective programs and inform policy that will best advance entrepreneurship and education.

The Kauffman Foundations reach and impact would not be possible without its vast social network of grantees, partners, experts, and practitioners. The Foundation helps cultivate these relationships by playing the role of convener, bringing together local, national, and world leaders to share innovative thinking and engage in dialog related to entrepreneurship and education. Each year, more than 60,000 people visit the Foundations Conference Center, which provides 40,000 square feet of state-of-the-art meeting space.

This position will be located at the Foundations home office in Kansas City, Missouri. The Kansas City metropolitan area is ranked by several national publications as one of the best places to live and work in the United States and offers an outstanding quality of life.


After a comprehensive exploration of the local and national education and entrepreneurship landscapes, The Kauffman Foundation adopted a new strategic plan in 2014 to better serve its mission. As part of this strategic direction, the Foundation will work to scale proven models of exemplar entrepreneurship support organizations, which will be the focus of this newly created Senior Program Officer role.

The Senior Program Officer will report to the Program Director within the Entrepreneurship department and will work collaboratively with Foundation and affiliate organization staff on entrepreneurship support organizations, an emerging focus area within the Foundation. S/he will lead or assist in the continued academic literature review and ongoing research and analysis in this field, and will help establish grant making priorities to organizations aimed at supporting entrepreneurs. The Senior Program Officer will have a hand in shaping Kauffmans first RFP with this strategic focus, which will likely be announced in summer 2015. Once established, the Senior Program Officer will continue to oversee the $1.5 to $2 million grant portfolio dedicated to exemplar entrepreneurship support organizations.
