The Kuni Foundation believes in the power of human potential. We invest in scientists who advance cancer research and accelerate the inclusion of people who experience intellectual and developmental disabilities.
We advance and shine light on human potential.
We listen to learn, and welcome insights from a diverse range of perspectives, including those with lived experience. In collaboration with our community, we strive to better understand needs and aspirations, explore solutions and accelerate impactful change.
Reflecting the legacy of our founders, we seek lasting change by listening, learning and activating possibility. Our vision is a world without cancer and a community where people who experience I/DD are visible, valued and included. We do this work with two key focus areas:
How We Work
We activate our promise to the communities we serve in three key ways:
Grants for Organizations that Support and Enhance the Lives of Individuals with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities and Cancer Research.
The Kuni Foundation advocates for person-centered housing options, justice and inclusion in the I/DD community.
We amplify our support for person-focused I/DD housing and innovative cancer research through program-related investments and direct investments.
The needs of the disability community are overlooked and left out conversations and decisions.
After decades of poor planning, minimal options, years-long waiting lists and declining funding, individuals and their families are in crisis. This study exposes how underreporting and old data have converged to create the perfect storm of instability and need for individuals who experience I/DD.
