1960s & 1970s

These were turbulent times in American society with the civil rights movement, the Vietnam War, a rapidly industrializing economy and instability in Washington, D.C. The Foundation continued to support its customary beneficiaries in education, in community service and the Near East. Additionally, the Foundation supported higher education for underserved communities as part of the Foundation’s expanding reach. Efforts were also made to support building campaigns for capacity building at YMCA and YWCA community centers.
