Board of Directors and Trustees

The Kavli Foundation is governed by a board of directors that includes one Kavli family member and seven leaders from science, higher education and business. The foundation president serves as an ex-officio member. The Kavli Foundation also has the Kavli Charitable Trust, created as an auxiliary mechanism to ensure that the foundation stays true to its mission. The Kavli Charitable Trust consists of two trustees - the presidents of Caltech and Stanford Universities.
