Koret supports public policy research and analysis that takes place at the college and university level, particularly as it pertains to the advancement of democratic societies, free-market economies, and education reform.
With our roots in the Jewish community, we are proud to support Jewish Studies at Northern California's colleges and universities. In addition, Koret has awarded significant capital and programmatic grants to Bay Area universities that create inviting opportunities for engagement with new and previously unimagined structures, programs, and responses to social, cultural, educational, or recreational needs. In recent years, capital grants have demonstrated the Foundation's continuing leadership in campaigns to expand and enhance community resources. These awards include contributions to the University of California's Mission Bay campus in San Francisco ($10 million); the University of San Francisco's Koret Law Center ($3.25 million); the Stanford Institute for Economic Policy Research ($3 million); and the Koret Interactive Learning Center at UC Berkeley's Haas School of Business.
