Werner Erhard Foundation

“The ultimate purpose of the Foundation is the full realization of the promise of human beings and their institutions. The Foundation’s intention is to create the space for an explosion of knowledge and attainment in the area of human consciousness and human experience similar to the one that occurred 250 years ago in the physical sciences which has dramatically affected humankind’s material well-being.”

-Werner Erhard, October 4, 1973

Werner Erhard Foundation

The support of the Werner Erhard Foundation made possible groundbreaking conversations between leaders, scholars and officials from virtually all parts of the world in the fields of human achievement and transformation. As a result of this support exchange programs were launched that provided new ground for international cooperation.

One such program was the US/USSR Project, launched by Werner Erhard and the Werner Erhard Foundation in 1979 and designed as an educational exchange to explore the principles of communication, management, and creative thinking with the people of what was then the Soviet Union. After several delegate exchanges, Werner Erhard was invited to conduct the first of many courses and lectures in Moscow under the auspices of the Znaniye (All Union Knowledge) Society (the prime vehicle for education in the former Soviet Union). http://www.wernererhardfoundation.org/ussr.html

Werner Erhard, and the entire Board of Directors, served the Foundation pro-bono, with Erhard committing a significant amount of time generating funds for the Foundation.
