A History of Giving
The Cabot family shares a multi-generational belief in looking for ways to make the world a better place.
Founded in 1938
Maria Moors Cabot Prizes
This legacy of giving was first formalized in 1938 by Godfrey Lowell Cabot when he endowed the Maria Moors Cabot Prizes at Columbia University. These are the oldest international prizes awarded in journalism today.
Founded in 1942
Cabot Family Charitable Trust
In order to sustain and encourage an active commitment to philanthropy by members of the Cabot family, Godfrey created the Cabot Family Charitable Trust in 1942.
Founded in 1992
Virginia Wellington Cabot Foundation
In 1992 Godfrey’s son Thomas D. Cabot and his wife Virginia, established the Virginia Wellington Cabot Foundation as an important tool for teaching future generations to be effective and innovative givers.
It was their wish that this foundation would be the instrument through which their descendants could actively participate in carrying on their tradition of trying to help make this a better world.
Founded in 2004
Bar N I Community Service Fund
The family continues to find ways to give, and in 2004 established the Bar N I Community Service Fund to provide support to local communities and service organizations of the Purgatoire Valley.
Today Cabot-Wellington, LLC continues to facilitate the family’s successful participation, stewardship, and preservation of multiple philanthropic endeavors.
