The Cabot family shares a multi-generational belief in looking for ways to make the world a better place.

Founded in 1938

Maria Moors Cabot Prizes

This legacy of giving was first formalized in 1938 by Godfrey Lowell Cabot when he endowed the Maria Moors Cabot Prizes at Columbia University. These are the oldest international prizes awarded in journalism today.

Founded in 1942

Cabot Family Charitable Trust

In order to sustain and encourage an active commitment to philanthropy by members of the Cabot family, Godfrey created the Cabot Family Charitable Trust in 1942.

Virginia Wellington Cabot Foundation

In 1992 Godfrey’s son Thomas D. Cabot and his wife Virginia, established the Virginia Wellington Cabot Foundation as an important tool for teaching future generations to be effective and innovative givers.

It was their wish that this foundation would be the instrument through which their descendants could actively participate in carrying on their tradition of trying to help make this a better world.
