About the Howard G Buffett Foundation:
The Howard G. Buffett Foundation was established in 1999 and its mission is to catalyze transformational change to improve the standard of living and quality of life, particularly for the world’s most impoverished and marginalized populations. We use our resources to improve conditions and create change in the most difficult circumstances and geographies. We invest our funding in three main areas: food security, conflict mitigation, and public safety.
