Krell Institute is developing an award to honor the memory and legacy of our founder, James Corones, who passed away April 28, 2017. While in the early stages of planning, the inaugural James Corones Award in Leadership, Community Building and Communication will be given in 2019.

Meanwhile, those wishing to contribute to the award fund should kindly follow these steps:

  • Make check payable to "Krell Institute" and note "Corones Award" in the memo line.
  • Mail the check to:
    Krell Institute
    c/o Shelly Olsan, President
    1609 Golden Aspen Drive
    Suite 101
    Ames, IA 50010
  • Ensure that your mailing includes the name(s) of those contributing to the award fund as well as a physical and/or email address for gift acknowledgement.
  • Direct questions to Shelly Olsan.

Once the award is finalized, Krell staff will share pertinent details and create a dedicated page on this website.

Thank you for your consideration.
