Donor Spotlight: Diana Davis Spencer Foundation

Mother and daughter Diana Davis Spencer and Abby Spencer Moffat lead the Diana Davis Spencer Foundation which seeks to provide individuals with tools to take charge of their own lives. As teenagers, Diana and Abby each volunteered for Children’s Village, mentoring juvenile offenders in New York’s Westchester County to help them become proficient, productive and responsible members of their communities. These formative experiences gave them insights into the kinds of support many children don’t have and really need. Today, their foundation invests in people to promote national security, freedom and a healthy economy – with entrepreneurship and innovation at its core.
