Shurl and Kay Curci Foundation

Supporting Science-Based Research

Who We Are

The Shurl and Kay Curci Foundation (the “Curci Foundation”) supports science-based research striving for the advancement of a healthy and sustainable future for humans. Founded in 2006, the Curci Foundation has given away millions of dollars to various scientific, research, educational and charitable entities. We have helped support the fight against COVID-19, funded scientific research at world-class universities in the U.S., and created a scholarship program to increase the number of women and international students in life sciences Ph.D. programs.

The Curci Foundation is proud to be a member of the Science Philanthropy Alliance, having joined as the SPA’s first associate member in 2015:
