Rockefeller Brothers Fund (RBF)

Overview

Rockefeller Brothers Fund is a private, family foundation helping to advance social change that contributes to a more just, sustainable, and peaceful world. It was created in 1940 by the sons of John D. Rockefeller, Jr.—John D. 3rd, Nelson, Winthrop, Laurance, and David—as a vehicle by which they could share advice and research on charitable activities and coordinate their philanthropic efforts to better effect. Abby “Babs” Rockefeller Mauzé, the eldest child and only daughter of John D. Rockefeller, Jr. and Abby Aldrich Rockefeller, joined the RBF’s board in 1954 and served as a trustee until her death in 1976. John D. Rockefeller, Jr. made a substantial gift to the Fund in 1951, and in 1960 the Fund received a major bequest from his estate. Together, these constitute the original endowment of the Fund.
