Our Grant Agreements

Our Grant Agreements

As a part of our commitment to the highest philanthropic standards, we publish the agreements for all of our major, multiple-year grants to colleges and universities.

The Charles Koch Foundation believes that openness brings opportunities. Before partnering with scholars, we learn about their past research projects and how they would like us to support their future scholarship.

We invite potential partners to do the same with us—learn about the other scholars and students we support—so they can understand how a grant from the Charles Koch Foundation can enhance their work. In addition to making our grant agreement template available, we also publish our major, multiple-year grant agreements with universities.

These grant agreements do not tell the full stories of the hundreds of schools, thousands of professors, and millions of students we are proud to work with, but they do provide insight into the breadth of projects and faculty we support.

Openness Brings Opportunities

To help make potential grantees aware of opportunities, we share news of all our major gifts.
