Charles Koch Institute’s educational and funding activities now two separate organizations

January 1, 2022

Effective January 1, 2022, the Charles Koch Institute will operate under the name Stand Together Fellowships. Stand Together Fellowships will continue to focus on educational programs, like Koch Associate Program, while Stand Together Trust will take over grantmaking efforts formerly conducted by the Charles Koch Institute. Derek Johnson, who continues to serve as executive director of Stand Together Fellowships, will also serve as executive director of Stand Together Trust.

Our vision and priorities will remain the same, and our team is thrilled to take this next step to further increase our close relationship with the other organizations that make up the broader Stand Together community. We believe this change positions us to more effectively advance our vision of a free and open society by removing the major barriers that prevent all Americans from realizing their potential and finding meaning and purpose in their lives.
