Our History


The RGK Foundation

RGK Foundation is an independent foundation established in 1966 by Ronya and George Kozmetsky. Ronya Kozmetsky led the Foundation until she retired in 1996, at which time her son, Gregory A. Kozmetsky, assumed the chairmanship. Ronya continued to serve as an active member of the Board of Trustees until her death in 2011. Dr. George Kozmetsky served as chairman of the board from 1966 to 1989, after which he continued to serve on the Board of Trustees until his death in 2003.

In 2016 the RGK Foundation decided to evolve into two separate foundations run by their children and grandchildren. The Reissa Foundation is proud of our history and we look forward to continuing in the philanthropic footsteps of our beloved Ronya and George.
