Bay Area Anchor Institutions

Creating a vibrant and distinctive Bay Area

Koret believes that when leading institutions improve how they work and expand their reach and impact, they create a strong, dynamic Bay Area for current and future generations. Through capital projects, general operating support, and program support, our focus is on strengthening these anchor institutions, helping them with their critical funding needs, and preparing them to meet the challenges of the future.

Our Bay Area Anchor Institutions Program supports a spectrum of arts, culture, and civic organizations and educational innovation efforts:

  • As part of our ongoing commitment to strengthening and enriching Bay Area communities, Koret supports and sustains high-quality cultural arts programs and civic organizations that contribute to the vibrancy of the Bay Area.
  • We work to enhance educational quality through the support of policy analysis, market-based reforms, and the development of scalable models. Our grant awards favor programs that support and replicate the high-performing academic models and improve educational leadership.
