Investing in Tomorrow's Business Leaders

The late Dr. Jon Kabara ’48 and his wife, Betty, challenged others to partner with them to help aspiring young entrepreneurs at Saint Mary’s succeed. This tradition continues today.

Dr. Kabara, an entrepreneur in the field of medical research, knew he wanted to share his passion, spirit and know-how with the businesspeople of tomorrow. In 2005, the Kabaras began their commitment to support the growth of entrepreneurship at Saint Mary’s. Through a transformational gift, Dr. Jon and Betty Kabara established the Kabara Institute for Entrepreneurial Studies.
