The Kaufman Fund…Serving those who Served.
The mission of The Kaufman Fund is to support veterans and children in the St. Louis region who are at risk of abuse or poverty, needing food, shelter, clothing, medical care and basic needs.
The Kaufman Fund was started in 1990 by Wayne Kaufman to honor the memory of Ralph Kaufman and his dedication to helping those in need. The Kaufman Fund carries that tradition forward. Over the past 20 years, we have raised and distributed over $1,000,000 to help local veterans and children.
All funds raised by The Kaufman Fund stay in the St. Louis region.
The Kaufman Fund is a registered 501c3 charity. Donations to the Kaufman Fund are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.
