With deep sadness, the trustees and staff of the Rockefeller Brothers Fund mourn the passing of our founder, David Rockefeller, who launched the RBF in 1940 with his four brothers, and devoted his remarkable life to creating a better world.
Recognizing the challenges to many of the RBFs program priorities presented by the current political climate, the board of trustees has approved an increase in the Fund’s grants budget by nearly 12 percent for 2017, Fund President Stephen Heintz announced today.
The RBF is pleased to become a signatory to the United Nations-supported Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI). The PRI’s members collaborate to implement and promote a set of voluntary principles that integrate environmental, social, and governance factors into their investment analysis.
