Corporate and Foundation Relations
The W. M. Keck Foundation - KGI's Founding Funder
Keck Graduate Institute would not have been possible without the founding investment of the W. M. Keck Foundation. The Foundation's support totaling $70 million since the institute's inception in 1997 has helped KGI recruit exceptional faculty and students, develop core infrastructure, and challenge greater support from individual donors, corporations and other foundations.
