Jessie Smith Noyes Foundation Oral History Collection, 1991-1992
The Jessie Smith Noyes Foundation was established in 1947 by Charles Noyes in memory of his wife. Over the course of its first three decades the Foundation focused its philanthropy on providing college funding to minority students via direct grants and scholarships, and through the institutions with the goal of increasing college attendance and diversifying the student body at predominantly white institutions. Since 1985 the Foundation has phased out its scholarship funding, focusing instead on nonprofit organizations whose work addressed the damaging effects of natural and social systems to bring about a more equitable and sustainable world.
