About Lippman Kanfer Foundation for Living Torah


Lippman Kanfer Foundation for Living Torah (LKFLT) works to help Jews and fellow travelers apply Jewish
wisdom to live better lives and shape a better world. In growing numbers, Jews and others who are exploring
both traditional and new ways to engage with Jewish teachings and practices are drawing on these experiences
and sensibilities to shape their thinking and behaviors. LKFLT supports the professionals and organizations
leading this work through grantmaking, convenings and network building, thought leadership, and strategic
communications. As part of this four-pronged strategy, LKFLT runs the Lippman Kanfer Prize for Applied Jewish
Wisdom, and publishes and supports research on applied Jewish wisdom in the field. For additional information,
see the foundation’s website: www.lkflt.org

In our fifth year as an independent foundation, LKFLT is working both to refine our strategy and impact and to
build our organizational infrastructure and systems to ensure efficient and effective operations over the long
term. LKFLT has a sister foundation—Lippman Kanfer Family Foundation (LKFF)—which is dedicated to building
and sustaining a multi-generational family culture of tzedakah (philanthropy) through thematic issue-based
grantmaking and support of the vitality of Jewish communities where Kanfer family members live, especially in
their hometown of Akron, Ohio. The family behind LKFLT has also established a family office / management
services firm, which provides IT, HR, finance, and accounting support to the foundations.
