Purpose and Activities

Giving primarily for cultural programs, including the arts, civic affairs, community development, higher and other education, health and social service agencies, and youth programs. Contributions almost always made as challenge or matching grants.


Established in 1975 in NE - Mr. Kiewit was president of Peter Kiewit Sons, Inc., which began as a family bricklaying business. Kiewit grew the firm into a successful international construction company. The foundation began disbursing funds in 1980, including grants to 18 recipients (totaling $14.3 million) designated in the original trust agreement. The foundation is of perpetual duration, disbursing all of its annual net income and only rarely invading its principal.
