Engaged citizens. Thriving communities.
To create opportunities for people to live in and help build strong, vibrant communities, achieve economic success, and enjoy a high quality of life.
To pursue our mission, we have established the following impact areas and goals:
- Youth Pathways to Success: Increase the number of youth who progress in their education and secure meaningful employment.
- Economic Growth and Opportunity: Bolster a vital, diverse and growing economy that advances individual and community prosperity.
- Strong and Vibrant Communities: Support local efforts to build thriving communities.
We support efforts primarily in Nebraska and the Omaha metro area. We also make grants in a portion of Western Iowa and other geographies of interest to Mr. Kiewit.
Over the past year, Peter Kiewit Foundation undertook a strategic planning process and engaged the Center for Effective Philanthropy to conduct an anonymous feedback survey of our grantees. Please click the following links to access our strategic plan and grantee feedback report.
The foundation is currently seeking to hire an Economic Growth and Opportunity Program Officer.
