Honesty is adherence to truth and truth is the discovery of reality.

Impossible things are just possible things that haven't been done yet.

Risk comes from not knowing what you're doing.

Solutions must target causes rather than effects. Otherwise, problems are never solved.

Never, never, never give up.

While COVID-19 has consumed 2020, it will not be the last public health crisis the world sees. To avoid future missteps, we must take an honest look at not only the U.S. response – and efforts to continue to manage the virus – but our policies and their implementation.

Vision & Approach

As a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) operating foundation, the JKTG Foundation has a simple but ambitious mission – make health care better.

Its work is rooted in an equally simple questions: Why are things done a certain way? How are patients impacted? What can be done differently to make things better or more efficient? This relentless curiosity drives every aspect of what the Foundation does.

It discretely funds science, scientists/researchers, and projects; it does not fund laboratories.

This approach – unique selection and support of unbiased research – differs from other grant-making foundations.

Operationally, JKTG identifies subject areas in which it has an interest, with which it wishes to be involved, and which it believes great impact could be made.

JKTG then identifies researchers or scientists in the applicable field possessing demonstrated capabilities and then, collaboratively, considers appropriate projects.

As a result, JKTG generally selects the scientists/researchers before a project is defined. This approach allows JKTG to understand specifically what a project did or did not demonstrate.
