Michael Milken, Chairman, Milken Institute
Mike Milken has been at the forefront of successful initiatives in medical research, education, public health and access to capital for five decades. In 1982 he formalized his philanthropy by co-founding the Milken Family Foundation, which has worked closely with more than 1,000 organizations around the world. The Foundation’s most acclaimed program, the Milken Educator Awards, was established in 1985 and is the largest teacher-recognition program in the United States. Dubbed the “Oscars of Teaching” by Teacher magazine, it has awarded tens of millions of dollars to honor thousands of K-12 teachers and principals.
In 1993, he founded the Milken Institute, which hosts more than 250 events annually, including conferences in Singapore, Abu Dhabi, Washington, D.C., and its annual Global Conference in Los Angeles. Mike also chairs FasterCures, which speeds progress against all life-threatening diseases, as well as the Prostate Cancer Foundation, the world’s largest private funder of prostate cancer research. He is a co-founder of the Melanoma Research Alliance, and the Milken Institute School of Public Health at George Washington University offers 30 degree options. His latest book, Faster Cures: Accelerating the Future of Health, chronicles his personal journey and progress in medical research and public health over the past half century.
The Milken Center for Advancing the American Dream, which is housed in several historic buildings directly across the street from the White House and the Treasury in Washington, D.C., will open in 2024.
As a financier, Mike revolutionized modern capital markets by pricing and rewarding risk more efficiently; the thousands of companies he financed created millions of jobs. A graduate of the University of California, Berkeley, he earned his M.B.A. at Wharton. He and his wife Lori have been married since 1968 and are members of the Giving Pledge; they have three children and 10 grandchildren. More information is at www.mikemilken.com.
