Howard G. Buffett Foundation
The Howard G. Buffett Foundation has committed over $1 billion since its inception in 1999 to catalyze transformational change to improve the world and the lives of the most impoverished and marginalized populations. We see the Foundation’s resources as the rare risk capital that can be deployed to create change in even the most difficult of circumstances. We invest our funding in three main areas: global food security; conflict mitigation; and public safety. The Foundation has been partnering with the Republic of Rwanda to address food security, mitigate conflict and invest in conservation for more than two decades.
