The Kosten Foundation is a collaborative effort between the Herb Kosten Family and the University of Tennessee, Memphis. Inspired by the death of Mr. Kosten due to pancreatic disease and the lack of community support and research progress toward this disease, his family initiated a grass-roots fundraising effort in the Memphis community. Yearly tennis tournaments (a favorite sport of Mr. Kosten) have yielded generous funding toward the fight against pancreatic cancer in the mid-south community.
Founded in 2003, shortly after Herb’s death, the Herb Kosten Pancreatic Cancer Charitable Fund was established by his family in order to pay tribute to a man who battled cancer with dignity and courage.
