Joyce Mertz-Gilmore Foundation

"In 1959, Joyce Mertz and her parents, LuEsther and Harold, established a family foundation called the Mertz Foundation. Joyce married Robert Wallace Gilmore in June of 1964, and the couple began managing the Foundation’s operations. Their strong personal convictions influenced both their approach to grantmaking and their funding interests. Together with their colleague and friend, Bayard Rustin, they became strong advocates for peace and civil rights issues for a number of years. Their grantmaking was a logical extension of that work."
