PROFILE: Founded in 2005, the John B. and Kelly Llanos Kilroy Foundation was established by the late real estate veteran John Kilroy and his wife Kelly Llanos Kilroy. Because the foundation keeps a low public profile, further information regarding grantmaking priority areas and specifics are unavailable. John B. Kilroy, Sr. launched the private commercial real estate company Kilroy Industries in 1947, which catered to the massive technology boom following WWII as defense and aerospace industries searched for commercial space. Kilroy was an avid sailor and yachting champion. John Kilroy Jr. now serves as CEO of Kilroy Industries. The John B. and Nelly Llanos Kilroy Foundation's grantmaking appears to focus on Southern California and invest broadly across the region.
Kilroy's tax filings suggest the foundation prioritizes educational and youth organizations. It also appears to focus on human services, the arts, animal, as well as religious causes. The foundation's grantmaking appears to focus on Southern California and the Greater Los Angeles area.
In a recent year, the foundation gave away around $1.2 million; grants are generally small, but a few hit the six-figure mark. Past grantees include St. Vincent Meals on Wheels, Pepperdine University, Loyola Marymount University, Homeboy Industries, Cal Tech, Harvey Mudd College, The Eastern Sierra Foundation, LACMA, and LifeSail in Marina Del Rey, which "provides underserved and at-risk youth with character-building programs through the art of sailing and seamanship."
The Kilroy Foundation, lists Nelly Llanos Kilroy as president, along with several other board members.
A recent tax filing indicates that the foundation does not accept unsolicited applications.
