World Monuments Fund 2009 Hadrian Award

Every year, the World Monuments Fund gives the Hadrian Award to international leaders who have advanced the preservation of world art and architecture. In 2009, WMF honored David Rockefeller, Jr.

This four-minute video illustrates how Mr. Rockefeller has successfully built upon a family legacy of philanthropy that generates positive social change, principally through the Rockefeller Foundation and the Rockefeller Brothers Fund. He has become a force in conservation and cultural heritage through his work with the Alaska Conservation Foundation, the Pew Oceans Commission, the National Parks Foundation, and the National Trust for Historic Preservation.
