To join us online:

Prior to joining Apax, David was a Principal at Butler Capital Corporation and an artillery officer in the U.S. Army where he graduated from the U.S. Army Airborne and Ranger schools.

David received a BS with Distinction from the United States Military Academy, West Point and an MBA from Harvard Business School.

David is also the Co-founder and CEO of the Children of Fallen Patriots Foundation which provides college scholarships to military children who have lost a parent to combat or training others.

In 1989, five days before Christmas, Sergeant William Delaney Gibbs from the 7th Infantry Division was killed in action during Operation Just Cause in Panama, leaving behind a young wife and an unborn daughter. Children of Fallen Patriots Founder and CEO, David Kim, served with Sergeant Gibbs and was inspired by his sacrifice and never forgot about Sergeant Gibbs or his daughter.

David Kim returned to the United States and founded Children of Fallen Patriots in 2002. Since 2002, Children of Fallen Patriots has grown in its mission and vision to extend peace of mind through college scholarships to Gold Star families in all 50 states, in all branches of the military.

Their mission is to provide college scholarships and educational counseling to military children who have lost a parent in the line of duty.

The event is finished.
