Mamie Gummer inherited more than good lucks and the acting bug from her mother, Meryl Streep.

Like her mom, she’s also active in nonprofit activities.

As a high school student, Gummer interned with the Women’s Refugee Commission, working in the communications department.

Now 29, she is still doing communications for the group, serving as its ambassador.

Streep has been an advocate for Stand up to Cancer, is a trustee of Vassar, her alma mater, and serves on the advisory board of Edible Schoolyard, a group that works to increase students’ knowledge about food and nutrition.

She and her husband, Don Gummer, also run the Silver Mountain Foundation for the Arts, which has given away millions of dollars. Organizations receiving grants include Vassar, the National Museum of Women’s History, and the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation.
