The W.K. Kellogg Foundation (WKKF) recently announced the election of retired CFAES Dean Bobby Moser to a two-year term as chair of the foundation’s board, replacing Roderick D. Gillum of Bloomfield Hills, Mich., whose term as chair expired. Moser also was re-elected to a three-year trustee term.
WKKF was founded in 1930 as an independent, private foundation by breakfast cereal pioneer Will Keith Kellogg. It is among the largest philanthropic foundations in the United States. Guided by the belief that all children should have an equal opportunity to thrive, it works with communities to help break the cycle of poverty by removing barriers based on race or income that hold back children, so they can realize their full potential in school, work and life.
