NYPIRG Change Maker Award - About Our Honorees

The Rockefeller Family Fund is a U.S.-based, family-led public charity that initiates, cultivates, and funds strategic efforts to promote a sustainable, just, free, and participatory society. Martha, John, Laurance, Nelson, and David Rockefeller created the Rockefeller Family Fund (RFF) in 1967. Since then, RFF has worked at the cutting edge of advocacy in such areas as environmental protection, advancing the economic rights of women, and helping citizens hold public and private institutions accountable for their actions. RFF is known for its creative grantmaking, its role as a catalyst in the nonprofit as well as the funding communities, and its record of public policy innovation.

Lee Wasserman, Director & Secretary, Rockefeller Family Fund

Lee Wasserman has served as Director of the Rockefeller Family Fund (RFF) since 1999. Lee’s work has led to creation and implementation of groundbreaking initiatives to address climate change, advance women’s economic interests, and expand citizens’ ability to influence their democratic institutions.

Prior to joining RFF, Lee was Advisor to The Pew Charitable Trusts where he designed and implemented major program initiatives. From 1988 to 1995, he served as executive director of Environmental Advocates of New York, a statewide organization, where he developed and helped pass several landmark environmental and health measures.

Lee is a graduate of Union College and Albany Law School. He received the 1993 Outstanding Young Alumnus Award from Albany Law School and in 2012 was admitted into Schenectady High School’s Hall of Fame in recognition of his professional achievement. He serves on advisory councils for the Scholars Strategy Network and Climate & Equity Fund.
