The Kepler College Founders' Circle was created in May of 1999 and completed in 2001. The Founders' Circle was an honorary society recognizing the contribution and commitment of persons who came together to help lay the foundation of Kepler College and ensured there was sufficient money to develop our program and open our doors. Members of the Founders' Circle contributed at least $25,000 dollars (US) and share their vision with other potential donors by letting their example become a pattern for others to follow.
