The Shauna Rose Kaufman Foundation is dedicated to pursuing Shauna's passions of art, equality, and education. We provide art teachers and instructions to kids in the third world, work to correct imbalances caused by discrimination based on race and disability, and strive to make sure every kid gets the best education possible.
When Shauna tragically passed in 2009, her family, though distraught with grief, immediately felt compelled to do something to create a positive force in the world in her name. In the first weeks after her death, the Kaufmans began what would later become the Shauna Rose Kaufman Foundation. They collected a number of donations from friends and families and started to get ideas for charitable work. They knew they wanted to promote Art, Equality, and Education. Today they have started programs in schools and communities around the world.Their work is inspired by Shauna's love and memory.
Disasters affect everyone. It's our duty to help those who are struck by natural disasters, just as we would want help if we were victims.
“If you teach a man to fish...” Education gives everyone the tools they need to succeed through their lives.
We are all created equal. Yet man-made inequalities are everywhere. We strive to create balance in the world through our work.
Art is an integral part of life. Without art, we are not whole. We work in America and abroad to promote art and art education.
The 2015 earthquake in Nepal devastated rural and remote communities. Our outreach continues through educational programs, support of students with disabilities and we continue our School Lunch for All program in remote Kavre District where we have been feeding children since we first met them in 2015. Sustainability matters! We do not undertake projects lightly but meet, investigate, and learn so that your donations are best served.
In the months after the earthquake, our team of volunteers distributed food, shelter, and household goods to thousands of family members focusing on those most at risk. We have reached thousands of earthquake victims after the 2015 earthquake in 7 rural and remote districts. Our board members were on the ground providing food, shelter, and rebuilding schools. We continue to help in the long process of rebuilding school, homes, and health centers. We have followed up with medical care and school enrollment.
