Creating opportunity for those who need it most
About king Philanthropies—
After a successful career as the founder of a California-based investment firm, Bob King and his wife Dottie shifted their focus to philanthropy in 1995. In the two decades that have followed they have become a national leader in philanthropic investments. King Philanthropies’ goals and work flows directly from the inspiration of its founders and centers on a singular goal: to alleviate extreme poverty. To that end, we use a research-based, data-driven approach to inform our specific focus areas within extreme poverty.
