Chaired by billionaire Leonard Lauder and founded by his late wife, Evelyn, the Breast Cancer Research Foundation is one of the most connected nonprofits in New York.
In addition to Leonard Lauder, former chairman of Estee Lauder Companies, two other family members sit on the group’s leaders council.
The interactive Muckety map above shows some of the most influential people serving on the board of directors, advisory board and leaders council.
We’ve extended the map to show spouses who are prominent business leaders. The map includes nine billionaires in addition to Leonard Lauder:
- Ronald S. Lauder
- Richard S. Lefrak
- Lynda R. Resnick
- Stewart A. Resnick
- Julian H. Robertson Jr.
- Wilbur L. Ross Jr.
- Stephen A. Schwarzman
- George Soros (through his late brother Paul)
- Joan H. Tisch
The foundation, which underwrites medical research in the U.S. and abroad, reported more than $71 million in donations and grants last year. As you might imagine, fundraising events are a big deal, costing $11 million.
The annual “Hot Pink Party” is scheduled for Monday. Elton John is performing and Elizabeth Hurley will emcee.
