PROFILE: Based in New York City, the Marie-Josée and Henry R. Kravis Foundation was established by Henry Kravis, a co-founder of the investment firm Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co., and his wife, Marie-Josée, who is a Canadian economist. The foundation supports many prestigious hospitals and cultural institutions in New York City. Little is known about the foundation’s broader priorities given its lack of web presence.

It has also made significant capital grants to several elite private secondary schools in the Northeast, among them the Loomis Chaffee School in Windsor, Connecticut, which established Henry R. Kravis Center for Excellence in Teaching with support from the Kravis Foundation.
