Philanthropy's Response to the Events of September 11th

The Foundation Center celebrated its 45th anniversary with a special program and reception at its New York office on November 12, 2001, just two months after the devastating terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. Reflecting the mood of the city and the country at the time, the opening segment of the program brought together five leaders from the philanthropic and nonprofit community — Barry Gaberman, Senior Vice President, Ford Foundation, and Chairman, The Foundation Center; Barbara Bryan, President, New York Association of Regional Grantmakers; Clara Miller, President, Nonprofit Finance Fund; Douglas W. Nelson, President, Annie E. Casey Foundation; and Sara L. Engelhardt, President, The Foundation Center — to share their perspectives on the philanthropic sector's response to September 11.
