New Leadership at the Fund

Last month, the Fund elected Valerie Rockefeller to chair the Rockefeller Brothers Fund board of trustees. Ms. Rockefeller is a middle school special education teacher specializing in adolescents with learning differences and emotional disabilities. She first joined the RBF board in 2003. Ms. Rockefeller succeeds Richard Rockefeller, who had led the Fund since 2006. Mr. Rockefeller will continue to help guide its activities as an advisory trustee.

The Fund also elected new trustee Daniel Levy. Mr. Levy is the director of the Middle East and North Africa Programme at the European Council on Foreign Relations; a senior research fellow at the New America Foundation and formerly director of its Middle East Taskforce; and a senior fellow at The Century Foundation.
