Jeremy Grantham, Robert Menschel and David Rubenstein were among 10 recipients to receive the Carnegie Medal of Philanthropy at a presentation on Thursday.
The medal was created in 2001 at the centennial observance of the beginning of Andrew Carnegie’s philanthropy career and is given periodically to one or more individuals who have “dedicated their private wealth to the public good and who have impressive careers as philanthropists,” according to the website on the award.
The medal is given by a four-member selection committee consisting of the Carnegie Corp. of New York, the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, Carnegie Institution for Science and the Carnegie Trusts for the Universities of Scotland, with two other Carnegie organizations rotating into the committee every year.
Mr. Grantham is co-founder and chief investment strategist at money manager Grantham, Mayo, Van Otterloo; Mr. Menschel is a senior director at Goldman Sachs Group; and Mr. Rubenstein is co-founder and co-CEO of The Carlyle Group.
The entire list of recipients is available on the award’s website
