DaVita offers scholarship opportunities to the families of teammates through two unique programs, The K.T. Family Foundation and The DaVita Children's Foundation.

The K.T. Family Foundation is privately funded by Kent Thiry, Chairman and CEO of DaVita, his wife, Denise O'Leary along with a few other donors. Since 2001, they have awarded 263 students with $556,000 in scholarships that can be used for private school tuition (grades 6-11) or deferred and applied towards college educational expenses.

"Kent and Denise have an incredible amount of respect for DaVita teammates, the values they uphold and the daily work they perform," said Kay Kargul, Scholarship Foundations Director.

The DaVita Children's Foundation - which was created in 2000 from a $500,000 endowment from the company - has awarded 232 students with $455,000 in scholarship funds. Recipients are awarded a scholarship ranging from $1,000 - 3,000 to use towards tuition, books, supplies, room and board, or other required equipment for their education. Every candidate submission is reviewed by a group of voluntary Trustees and measures the student's involvement in community service, academic performance and demonstrated leadership.
