We’re continually impressed by the quality and diversity of proposals that scholars and community groups bring to us. This year is no exception, and we’re proud to be able to meet the increasing demand. In 2017, our giving totaled nearly $90 million in grants, and 2018’s giving has already surpassed last year’s number.
As always, our giving is guided by Charles Koch’s philanthropic vision, that all people can achieve extraordinary things if they have the opportunity to do so. We believe that education provides the greatest opportunity for personal transformation, and we work with scholars, universities, and other non-profit partners to help remove the barriers that hold people back.
