Kayne Anderson Capital Advisors Foundation’s Mission and Purpose
In 2011 the Kayne Anderson Capital Advisors Foundation (the Foundation) was established by Kayne Anderson Capital Advisors to demonstrate that charitable giving and involvement are an important part of our culture, and to encourage employees to increase their participation and individual giving to charitable activities. Our priority is to donate to those non-profit organizations that our employees have demonstrated a commitment and passion to support themselves with both their financial resources and their time. Our emphasis is to donate to those non-profit organizations that help society's most disadvantaged - economically, physically, educationally, or socially - become empowered to be more independent, productive contributors to society.
The Foundation has established two programs by which to make donations: the Employee Matching Program and the Direct Support Program.Employee Matching Program
Under the Employee Matching Program, the Foundation will match donations up to $5,000 per employee household, per year, so long as the charity qualifies as a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization.
Direct Support Program
The Direct Support Program provides a venue for employees to request a donation from the Foundation beyond the amounts available to them through the Employee Matching Program. A Distribution Committee consisting of employees of Kayne Anderson Capital Advisors meets periodically to discuss the attributes of numerous non-profit organizations that employees have demonstrated a commitment and passion to support themselves. The guidelines listed below provide a framework for the Distribution Committee to evaluate these non-profit organizations.
The amount of the Direct Support donation will be based on criteria such as:
Directors and Committee Members
A Distribution Committee made up of KACALP employees determines the recipients of the Foundation’s donations.
It has been our pleasure to support dozens of organizations that have a passion and business model to empower and support individuals to enrich their lives, and as a result, enrich all of our lives. For further information on some of these organizations, click here.
