OVERVIEW: The Karsh Family Foundation supports a variety of K-12 projects including the KIPP charter school network. 

IP TAKE: Based in California, the Karsh Family Foundation supports a variety of K-12 projects including the KIPP charter school network. This funder does not accept unsolicited proposals.

PROFILE: The Karsh Family Foundation was founded in 1998 by Bruce Karsh, the founder of Oaktree Capital, and his wife, Martha. The foundation is based in Beverly Hills, California and does not maintain a website, which limits grantmaking information.

Tax filings suggest it broadly prioritizes education and K-12 education. It supports  the Knowledge is Power Program (KIPP), a network of over 200 public charter schools in the United States. The Karsh Foundation has also funded the Children’s Bureau of Los Angeles, which provides prevention, treatment and advocacy for at-risk children in the greater Los Angeles area, and ICivics, an on-line resource that offers free educational materials for teaching K-12 students about government.

The Karsh Family Foundation does not accept unsolicited proposals.
