The Eugene and Agnes Meyer Foundation: The Real Legacy of the Washington Post
For seven decades, a foundation created with money from the Washington Post’s owners has been trying to help push America further to port. You have probably never heard of it, but it continues to exercise significant influence in America’s capital city and beyond. Although the Meyer Foundation funds many plain-vanilla nonprofits and lacks the monetary heft of a Ford Foundation, its deep roots in radicalism and its influence in the nation’s capital make it a significant player in left-wing philanthropy. It deserves more attention than it has received so far.
