Mr. Donald L. Kirk

May 25, 1929 — Oct 06, 2018

Throughout his life, Donald Kirk was a hardworking and talented businessman, but his greatest impact may have been in the way he touched so many people, through his deep involvement with the world of philanthropy in Canada, the US, and Israel. Donald was an active member of the Board of Governors of the Weizmann Institute (now called the International Board), and a former Director of ACWIS’s Midwest Region.

His memory will live on here at the Weizmann Institute through his many gifts; most significantly, the Kirk Center for Childhood Cancer and Immunological Disorders. This Center will serve as an enduring legacy for Donald’s memory with the goal of bringing hope and treatments to children suffering from various debilitating and devastating diseases.

To all those who knew him, and those who knew him only by reputation, Donald’s loss is great indeed.
