The Steiner-King Foundation (SKF) received tax-exempt status in 1995. John Steiner and his wife, Margo King, serve as trustees of this foundation.
Mr. Steiner, a 1965 graduate of Harvard University, also works with the Mediators Foundation (MF), an organization whose mission is “to foster global leadership for a peaceful, just and sustainable world by identifying, supporting and connecting visionary leaders working in the best interests of our small planet.” MF describes Steiner as “a networker, catalyst, creative consultant, occasional philanthropist and venture capital investor.” In addition, Steiner has served as a co-founder of the National Commons (a predecessor to the United States Consensus Council); a founding board member of Search for Common Ground; a founding member and early leader of the Threshold Foundation; a founding member of the Social Venture Network; a board chairman of the Center for Dispute Resolution (a.k.a. CDR Associates); the acting board chairman of Reuniting America; and a collaborator with Dr. Robert Fuller in the DIGNITY Movement. Steiner also has given financial support to ActBlue, which raises funds for Democratic Party candidates.
Ms. King, for her part, says that she and her husband “work in the many worlds of environmental, social, political, economic and spiritual activism.” “A sample of projects we have helped initiate and/or support,” King adds, “are [the] Threshold Foundation, the Integral Institute, the global e-Parliament and Climate Parliament, the Abraham Path in the Middle East, [the] Mediators Foundation, Wisdom Beyond Borders, [the] Social Venture Network, Creative Philanthropy, Hub Boulder, Impact Partners, Gamechanger Films, Transpartisan political field building, [and] Evolutionary Leaders.”
