David Rockefeller Fund


: Violence/Law/Criminal Justice


The Fund was established in 1989 by the founder and his wife to carry out their annual charitable giving in communities where they had homes outside of New York City. The founder(s) expanded the Fund and invited their children and grandchildren and their spouses to take a more active role in the Fund with the idea of transferring the family's philanthropic tradition. The Fund seeks to address the root causes of problems, working both locally and on a broader policy level. The Fund's efforts are guided by the following principles: family legacy, risk taking, leverage, respect, flexibility, and self-examination. The Fund makes grants in the following areas: The Criminal Justice Program focuses on supporting bold new ideas and policy proposals for transforming U.S. detention and incarceration policy. The Fund's Environment Program focuses on funding new ideas, initiatives, and policy breakthroughs in support of bipartisan U.S. climate leadership. The Arts Program focuses on cultivating, showcasing, and disseminating the stories of innovative art for social change. Letters of inquiry are accepted at any time.
