Established in 1989 in NY - The David Rockefeller Fund was established in 1989 by David Rockefeller and his wife Peggy to carry out their annual charitable giving in communities where they had homes outside New York City. In 2001, David Rockefeller expanded the fund and invited his children and grandchildren and their spouses to take a more active role in the fund with the idea of transferring to them his philanthropic legacy. The fund's work provides a learning environment where family members are able to engage in dialogue and grantmaking around shared topics of interest. David Rockefeller is a former banker, political appointee, globalist, and the current leader of the Rockefeller family. He has served as Chairman of such notable institutions as the Council of Foreign Relations, the Chase Manhattan Bank, and the Museum of Modern Art. He has been the recipient of numerous awards, including the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the U.S. Legion of Merit, and the Andrew Carnegie Medal of Philanthropy. David Rockefeller has committed to The Giving Pledge, and has pledged to give away at least half of his wealth to philanthropy.
