Peter Williamson is a sixth-generation member of the Kettering Family Foundation member and the co-founder of Next Gen Giving Circle in Washington, DC. He is also an Unfunded List board member and a professional golfer. Peter is a great final guest for our fourth season, as we have been focused on collective philanthropy interviewing givers who give with others. Peter has been giving collectively through two distinct vehicles and is involved in a wide range of interesting philanthropy initiatives.
The Kettering Family Foundation was founded by Charles’ son Eugene W. Kettering and his wife Virginia W. Kettering in 1956. Its assets support a broad range of charitable activities of interest to the Board of Trustees composed of Kettering Family members.
Founded in 2019, the Next Gen Giving Circle’s mission is to cultivate the next generation of philanthropists in the greater Washington D.C. region.
The Giving Circle is comprised of members contributing monthly donations that get pooled together for impactful grants to community causes. Members convene throughout the year to connect and engage with the local community.
Peter Williamson is a great supporter of Unfunded List. He currently serves on our board of directors and has evaluated on our committee every round since 2018. Thanks to Peter, both Kettering Family Foundation and Next Gen Giving Circle have shared proposals for review.
