The Vernon K. Krieble Foundation is a US-based private foundation. It established in 1984 by the family of Professor Vernon K. Krieble (1885-1964), scientist, educator, inventor, and entrepreneur who became 'one of the most influential chemists in the country'.

The foundation is run by his daughter Helen Krieble. Its mission states that:

Recognizing that the Foundation's assets are the product of a free and democratic society, the founders considered it fitting that those assets be used "to further democratic capitalism and to preserve and promote a society of free, educated, healthy and creative individuals."
