New York, New York, October 15, 2009— The 2009 Carnegie Medal of Philanthropy was awarded to four individuals and families who have dedicated their private wealth to the public good. The 2009 recipients were: Michael R. Bloomberg, the Koç family, Gordon & Betty Moore and Sanford & Joan Weill. The awards were presented on behalf of the more than 20 organizations established thanks to Andrew Carnegie‘s munificence.

The Carnegie Medal of Philanthropy was established in 2001 to mark the centennial of Andrew Carnegie‘s philanthropy. Medalists are nominated by all the Carnegie organizations throughout the United States and Europe, and selected by a committee comprised of representatives of seven of those institutions.

The Medal is awarded every two years to recognize individuals and families with exceptional and sustained records of philanthropic giving. This year‘s medalists have helped establish and support nonprofit organizations in the U.S. and abroad that span the fields of medicine, education, culture, and science. The awardees‘ philanthropic records embody Andrew Carnegie‘s ideals that with wealth comes responsibility, and private wealth should serve the public good.

"The 2009 Medalists represent a diverse cross-section of philanthropic commitments and geographic locations. Yet, they have a common philosophy of giving," said Vartan Gregorian, president of Carnegie Corporation of New York and chair of the Medal selection committee. "By celebrating the philanthropic work of these individuals and families, we, the members of the Carnegie family of institutions, seek to highlight the importance of philanthropy in our modern societies. The Medal also gives us an opportunity to celebrate Andrew Carnegie‘s philanthropy and the many contributions of the organizations he founded."

Andrew Carnegie's philanthropic career began in the 1870s.
In "The Gospel of Wealth," which he published in 1889, he outlined his philosophy of giving, which asserted that the rich are "trustees"
of their wealth and are under a moral obligation to reinvest it in society in ways that promote the welfare and happiness of the ―common man."
 
Andrew Carnegie believed that one who dies rich dies disgraced, because one did not have the imagination or the foresight to dispose of one‘s wealth for the good of society. By the time of his death in 1919, Carnegie had been true to his convictions: he had disposed of his wealth wisely. He invested a minimum of $350 million dollars—nearly all of his fortune—to advance education, science, culture
and international peace. More than a century later, more than 20 organizations carry Andrew Carnegie‘s name and continue his mission.

The selection committee is chaired by Vartan Gregorian. William Thomson, great grandson of Andrew Carnegie and Honorary Chair of the Carnegie United Kingdom Trust, served as Honorary Chair of the Medal Selection Committee. The committee‘s members are:
Andrew Miller, Carnegie Trust for the Universities of Scotland; Richard Meserve, Carnegie Institution for Science; Nora Rundell, Carnegie Dunfermline Trust; David Hillenbrand, Carnegie Museums of Pittsburgh; and, Jessica Mathews, Carnegie Endowment for International Peace.

Leaders from the 22 Carnegie organizations have spent considerable effort to identify and nominate global philanthropic leaders. The Koç family is the seventh international awardee in the medal‘s history. Past international medalists include: the Cadbury family, Sir Tom Farmer, His Highness the Aga Khan, Dr. Kazuo Inamori, the Sainsbury family and the Tata Family.

The Medals were conferred at the Celeste Bartos Forum of the
The New York Public Library, Stephen A. Schwarzman Building.
Bill Moyers, noted author, journalist, and host of Bill Moyers Journal served as Master of Ceremonies. The awards ceremony was the centerpiece of a day-long celebration including a roundtable discussion entitled "Foundations of Modern Philanthropy: Private Wealth to Public Good, 1889-2009" featuring David Nasaw, author of Andrew Carnegie; Patricia Stonesifer, Special Advisor to the Trustees, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation; Jean Strouse,
Author of Morgan, American Financier; and Peter J. Johnson,
Co-Author of The Rockefeller Century and Associate, Rockefeller
Family & Associates.
