About Milken Family Foundation

Founded by Michael and Lowell Milken in 1982, and directed by Chairman Lowell Milken, the Milken Family Foundation’s innovative initiatives continue to forge new pathways in the realms of education and medical research.

The belief that young people are not only our greatest natural resource, but our greatest national resource has been the guiding philosophy that drives Lowell Milken and the foundation to develop many of the country’s most groundbreaking education reform initiatives. Whether founding the nation’s preeminent teacher recognition program, highlighting the importance of early childhood education, advancing the effective use of education technology, or leading the nation’s most successful comprehensive education reform system, MFF continues to champion strategies that elevate education in America and around the world.

In medical research, advances driven by MFF are transforming the ways in which research is conducted and connected, improving the health and well-being of individuals and communities worldwide. Programs and contributions further the battle against cancer, epilepsy and other diseases through the pursuit of treatments and, ultimately, cures.
