Stanton Foundation

The Stanton Foundation (originally the Ruth and Frank Stanton Fund) is a philanthropic organization established by Frank Stanton and his wife in 1991. The Foundation donates to projects relating to canine welfare, nuclear security, technology improvements for the projects of the Wikimedia Foundation, and urban planning, among other causes.

Stanton served as the president of CBS News from 1946 to 1971. He was also selected by U.S. President Dwight Eisenhower in 1954 to serve on a committee that would plan the country's response to a nuclear attack. The Foundation was established on September 1, 1991, as the Ruth and Frank Stanton Fund by Stanton and his wife Ruth before her death in 1992. After his wife's death, Frank Stanton continued his philanthropic work, until his own death in 2006. By 2009, the name had changed to the "Stanton Foundation".
