Robert W. Woodruff Foundation
The Robert W. Woodruff Foundation "is an independent private foundation with a broad charter to support charitable, scientific and educational activities. The Foundation is governed by a self-perpetuating Board of Trustees under the laws of the state of Georgia. Grants generally are limited to tax-exempt public charities located and operating in Georgia."
"Robert Woodruff assumed leadership of The Coca-Cola Company in 1923 and guided it until his death in 1985. In 1937 he incorporated the Trebor Foundation, which was renamed the Robert W. Woodruff Foundation following his death. The Foundation received funds from the estate of Mr. Woodruff's wife, Nell Hodgson Woodruff, who died in 1968, and from Mr. Woodruff's estate. The Woodruffs had no children."
In 2006 they provided funding to groups like:
- The Nature Conservancy
- Habitat for Humanity International ($2.5 million)
- The Foundation Center
- Path Foundation
