The Margaret Ellerbe Mahoney Society

The Margaret Ellerbe Mahoney Society recognizes leadership donors who have given $1,000 or more in gifts or in-kind products or services during the year.

Gifts from Mahoney Society members allow us to expand proven programs, amplify important health messages, discover new health solutions and respond to emergencies with speed and flexibility on behalf of CDC. We are deeply grateful for the generosity of Mahoney Society members and their vote of confidence in the CDC Foundation’s mission and CDC’s lifesaving work.

The CDC Foundation board of directors created The Margaret Ellerbe Mahoney Society in 1998 to honor Ms. Mahoney for her service to the board and her vital support of Foundation initiatives since its inception. Widely respected in philanthropic circles as the “Grande Dame” of philanthropy, she devoted her career to working with philanthropies focused on health, education, arts and the humanities. She worked in key roles at the Carnegie Corporation of New York, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and The Commonwealth Fund. Ms. Mahoney was a strong advocate of the CDC Foundation until her passing in 2011.
