About The Wallace Foundation

The Wallace Foundation—an independent, national, New York-based philanthropy with $1.8 billion in assets—traces its origins back more than half a century to DeWitt and Lila Acheson Wallace, founders of The Reader’s Digest Association. Our work is grounded by our core values, which guide how we work together, and our mission and approach, which describes what we do. We aim to create a workplace where we all can thrive and contribute in support of our mission.
