THE GORDON PARKS FOUNDATION permanently preserves the work of Gordon Parks, makes it available to the public through exhibitions, books, and electronic media and supports artistic and educational activities that advance what Gordon described as "the common search for a better life and a better world." The Foundation is a division of the Meserve-Kunhardt Foundation.
The Gordon Parks Foundation preserves Parks' creative work and grants educational scholarships to the next generation of young artists advancing what Parks described as "the common search for a better life and a better world." The Gordon Parks Award is given to individuals who have enriched our lives in ways that reflect Parks' ideas and goals by using creative means to inspire the next generation. The funds raised will allow the Foundation to continue to grow its educational scholarship program and to continue to make his work available to schools, museums and communities around the world.
