He was a member of the Board of Trustees of Dia Art Foundation, and on the boards of Tate, London and the Guggenheim Museum, New York. In addition, a portion of his collection forms the core of the Kiasma Museum of Contemporary Art in Helsinki, Finland (http://kokoelmat.fng.fi/app?si=http://kansallisgalleria.fi/E78.Collection_Kouri_kokoelma&lang=en).
