While the Kennedy family business is rightly considered to be politics, charitable work comes a close second.
The interactive Muckety map above shows the network of nonprofit organizations with Kennedy ties.
Eunice Kennedy Shriver
Best known is the Special Olympics, founded by the late Eunice Kennedy Shriver. Her son, Timothy Perry Shriver, now chairs the board; her daughter Maria, former first lady of California, is a director.
Foundations bearing the family name, such as John F. Kennedy Library Foundation and the Joseph P. Kennedy Jr. Foundation unsurprisingly have Kennedys on their boards.
Yet the network extends far beyond these central organizations.
Robert F. Kennedy Jr., a prominent environmentalist, founded Waterkeeper Alliance and sits on the boards of Riverkeeper and the Bedford Stuyvesant Restoration Corporation.
His cousin, Anthony Paul Kennedy Shriver, founded Best Buddies International, which aims to create friendships and job opportunities for those with developmental disabilities. Two other family members, former Rep. Patrick J. Kennedy (son of the late Sen. Ted Kennedy) and Tatiana Schlossberg (daughter of Caroline Kennedy) sit on the board.
Before becoming U.S. ambassador to Japan, Caroline Kennedy also worked with several nonprofits, including the Fund for Public Schools, the NAACP Legal Defense & Educational Fund and American Ballet Theatre.
