Charles Koch Foundation Careers

Begin your journey with us.

History demonstrates people are capable of extraordinary things when they have the opportunity to learn, contribute, and succeed. That’s why, more than 50 years ago, Charles G. Koch began supporting education. The Charles Koch Foundation continues this work by funding research and education that helps people expand their horizons, develop their skills, and help others.

We focus on specific challenges in society, such as criminal justice reform, foreign policy, economic opportunity, and free expression, among others. By funding original research, we hope to help unearth new insights and approaches for improving society. Learn more about our philanthropy’s work.

Why Charles Koch Foundation?
“I was attracted to CKF because so much of classical liberal philosophy aligns with my own views. But I have stayed because the culture is excellent, one in which challenge is encouraged, folks are expected to stretch out of their comfort zone and acting in a principled way is rewarded.”

Nik Walker, Director, CKF Research Team

“The culture, hands down! In particular, the emphasis on principled entrepreneurship and decision rights. It’s so cool to see a company that trusts their team at all levels to make decisions and empowers us to own our outcomes.”

Shianne Chatarjee, Higher Education

“Where do I start? The idea that our organization will work with an organization based on common goals is fascinating. At our corporate office all of our conference rooms are named after someone who has inspired Charles Koch. My favorite one is the Frederick Douglass conference room because it has one of my favorite quotes ‘I would unite with anybody to do right and with nobody to do wrong.’ I feel our organization embraces this fully.”

Gaby Hart, Executive Assistant
