RICHARD KING MELLON FOUNDATION
PROTECT, PRESERVE, RESTORE
In addition to designing and developing the organization's Website (www.rkmf.org), W|W designed the 2013 - 2018 Annual Reports for the Richard King Mellon Foundation, one of America’s largest private foundations. For more than 60 years the RK Mellon Foundation has invested in the competitive future and quality of life in Southwestern Pennsylvania, and in the protection, preservation, and restoration of America’s environmental heritage. The Foundation was created in 1947 by Richard King Mellon (1899 – 1970), president and chairman of Mellon Bank, a conservationist and leading figure in the financial and civic life of Pennsylvania.
The Foundation’s grant-making history and ongoing grants are intended to help develop, nurture, and strengthen institutional leaders whose endeavors play an essential role in shaping and supporting the quality of life in southwestern Pennsylvania - both now and into the future.
W|W has also designed several books for the Foundation, including a retrospective publication for the Trustees of the Valley School of Ligonier and volume 2 of From Sea To Shining Sea that showcases its impact in conservation from 2003-2017.
FROM SEA TO SHINING SEA
W|W designed From Sea To Shining Sea, Volume 2 2003-2017 that chronicles the Foundation's conservation legacy. With the belief that preserving America's wildlife habitats, scenic vistas, forests, ranches, watersheds and historic battlefields was integral to the health of the nation and its citizens, the Foundation has protected nearly four million acres of land at sites in all 50 states. The 120-page publication showcases the impact of the Foundation's conservation focus over a fifteen-year timeframe.
