Mission and Legacy
The Kazickas Family's philanthropy is motivated by our wish to create a better world for both current and future generations of Lithuanians. The Kazickas' "Odyssey of Hope" brought the family to America, the new world of freedom and opportunity, but we never forgot our heritage and the homeland. When Lithuania regained its independence in 1991, we knew we had an opportunity to help Lithuania in its post-Soviet development. The Kazickas Family Foundation was established in 1998.
The Foundation's main focus has always been in education. But over the years we have expanded our grant making efforts to include culture and the arts, social welfare, technology, and medicine. Most of our grants are for causes in Lithuania and projects related to Lithuania in the United States. However, KFF has also supported many projects in other countries.
With its offices in Vilnius and New York, allocating financial, human and leadership resources, KFF hopes that you will be able to join it in this important work.
The Foundation does not give grants to individuals.
