Founder and Chair, The Synergos Institute
In 1986 Peggy Dulany founded the Synergos Institute, a global nonprofit organization that brings people together to solve complex problems of poverty and create opportunities for individuals and their communities to thrive. In 2001, she co-founded Synergos’ Global Philanthropists Circle with her father, David Rockefeller, to support philanthropic families in using this approach. In addition to serving as chair of Synergos, Peggy has sat on over thirty nonprofit and corporate boards, including the Rockefeller Brothers Fund and the Africa-America Institute. During her career, Peggy has also led a public high school program for dropouts and consulted with the United Nations, the Ford Foundation and the National Endowment for the Arts. She runs two socially responsible businesses: a grassfed beef and guest ranch in Montana and an ecotourism operation in Namibia. Peggy is an honors graduate of Radcliffe College and holds a doctorate in education from Harvard University.
