RBF President Stephen Heintz will co-chair a project of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences to explore evolving concepts of citizenship and examine how citizens interact with democratic institutions in an effort to promote increased civic participation in the United States.
We are proud to add our program reports and third-party evaluations to Foundation Center's IssueLab as part of their #OpenForGood campaign, which provides open access to the philanthropic sector's research and learning.
In his annual message, RBF President Stephen Heintz lays out his “Logic of the Future” for a new global ethos of fairness, along with a redefinition of American leadership. The Fund’s review of its 2016 activities also commemorates David Rockefeller and Abby M. O'Neill, who both passed away in 2017.
The trustees and staff of the RBF mourn the passing of our former trustee and board chair, Abby M. O’Neill, who was elected as a trustee of the Fund in 1958, the first member of her generation to serve as a Fund trustee and, later, the first woman to serve as board chair.
