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 - 2020 Annual Reports for the Richard King Mellon Foundation, one of America’s largest private foundations. For more than 70 years the Richard King 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.
W|W has also designed several books for the Foundation, including a retrospective publication for the Trustees of the Valley School of Ligonier, Seeding Transformation that chronicles the 20-year period of grantmaking from 1998-2018, and volume 2 of From Sea To Shining Sea that showcases the Foundation's impact in conservation from 2003-2017.
W|W designed Seeding Transformation, a publication that chronicles how the Foundation helped meet essential needs during the 20 year period of grantmaking from 1998-2018. The nearly 300-page book contains a compelling narrative and accompanying imagery that addresses four sections of impact: Conservation, Education, Human Services, and Economic Development. This volume tells the latest chapter in the Foundation's 70+ years of ongoing philanthropic efforts, in a way that honors the lives and visions of its founders but also pays tribute to citizens throughout the region.
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 were integral to the health of the nation and its citizens, the Foundation has protected more than 4.5 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.
