Anne Dinning: Wall Street Grants

NET WORTH: $680 million

SOURCE OF WEALTH: D.E. Shaw

FUNDING AREAS: Human Services, (STEM) Education

OVERVIEW: Anne Dinning and her family conduct philanthropy through the Corabelle Lumps Foundation, which lacks transparency and does not maintain a website, restricting information about its grantmaking guidelines. The family has directed millions to antipoverty outfit Robin Hood Foundation, where Dinning is on the board.

BACKGROUND: Anne Dinning graduated from University of Washington and received her Ph.D. in computer science New York University. She became an early employee of the D. E. Shaw group, a specialized investment and technology development firm.

ISSUES:

HUMAN SERVICES: Anne Dinning serves as vice chair of the board of directors of Robin Hood Foundation, which the family has given millions, including $5.5 million alone in a recent fiscal year. She is also a member of the board of directors of Partners In Health, which helps provide medical care to patients in poor communities around the world.

(STEM) EDUCATION: Anne Dinning supports her alma mater University of Washington, including its School of Computer Science and Engineering, home to the Anne Dinning - Michael Wolf Endowed Regental Fellowship. She’s also supported College Success Foundation. Dinning serves on the board of directors of Math for America, a non-profit organization focused on improving mathematics education in U.S. public secondary schools

LOOKING FORWARD: Dinning has given quite a bit of money to Robin Hood Foundation. Perhaps she will deepen her interests through her foundation in the coming years.
