The Kimball Fund for Equity and Inclusion
The Kimball Fund for Equity and Inclusion was created through a generous gift from the Kimball Foundation in 2019. Created with assistance from the Grade School Class of 2019, the Kimball Fund supports diversity efforts through specific tuition scholarships for families from underrepresented communities in the Bay Area.
The goal of the fund is to ensure a long-term endowment for families from diverse backgrounds at all levels of education, from the parent-child program through high school. The fund provides need-blind incentive grants ranging from $1,000 to $5,000. If you would like to know more, please contact Advancement Director Mitch Mitchell.
The Kimball Foundation awards grants to organizations providing "college access and persistence, workplace and vocational training, cultural enrichment, and environmental education programs" in the community.
William Kimball (1919 - 2005) was a major philanthropist in the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond. Kimball was embedded in the Bay Area community as a Stanford alumni and board member of countless organizations such as the California Academy of Sciences, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, and the American Conservatory Theater. He supported education, the arts, the environment and historical preservation through his founding of the Acorn Foundation and the Kimball Foundation.
