Board of Directors and Trustees

The Kavli Foundation is governed by a board of directors that includes one Kavli family member, six leaders from science, higher education and business, and the foundation’s president. The Kavli Charitable Trust was also created as an auxiliary mechanism to ensure that we stay true to the foundation’s mission and our founder’s vision. The Kavli Charitable Trust consists of two trustees, the presidents of Caltech and Stanford Universities.
