Barbara Harman

Of the Harman Family Foundation and Catalogue for Philanthropy Greater Washington (DC)

Like Dave, Barbara Harman inherited control of her family foundation. The Harman Family Foundation was founded by her father, Sydney Harman who was Undersecretary of Commerce under President Carter and co-founder of the Harman Kardon speaker company.

Also like Dave, Barbara founded a nonprofit whose activities include publishing a list (in Barbara’s case it’s a catalogue) of philanthropies. The Catalogue for Philanthropy is a D.C. institution (like Barbara herself) that has raised over $25 million for local charities.
