About Walter Haas & Daniel Koshland

Walter A. Haas, Sr. and Daniel E. Koshland, Sr., both native Californians, earned Bachelor's Degrees in Economics from the University of California, Berkeley. Both were awarded honorary degrees by their Alma Mater.

These men were actively involved in the management of Levi Strauss & Co. and were personally responsible for the company's success and for the sensitivity and understanding for which the company is famous in the treatment of its employees.

Their dedication to their community inspired deep involvement in numerous civic and philanthropic organizations and their life-long interest in quality education and young people, in particular, made them well-known and well-respected in the Bay Area and throughout the world. A great deal of their time, dedication and generosity was directed toward the intellectual, medical and social betterment of the community.

About the Haas/Koshland Memorial Award

Each year, the Jewish Community Endowment Fund invites students to apply for the Haas/Koshland Memorial Award. The grant, which is given annually by the descendents of Walter A. Haas, Sr. and Daniel E. Koshland, Sr., funds a year of study and personal development in Israel. This past summer the Haas/Koshland Memorial Award brought together 27 years of past winners to reunite with the Haas and Koshland families. Please visit the reunion site to read more.
