Public Welfare Foundation

"The Foundation's first grant was made in 1948 - 28 sewing machines for an organization of Jamaican women, so that the island's poor children could be clothed and sent to school. Marsh saw to it that the Foundation followed up with funding for scholarships and occupational training, medical equipment, clinics and - ahead of the times - micro-loans for fishermen. As the Foundation grew, Marsh built a network of "agents" assigned to find worthwhile recipients: among them, according to Kopper, the young Indira Gandhi, Mother Teresa and the playwright Noel Coward."
