Overview and metadata sections
The CarEth Foundation is a family-run funding resource for the peace and social justice movement. It was founded in 1967 by G. Sterling Grumman to promote enduring world peace. The foundation was named after Carol Grumman and Ethel Grumman, aunts of G. Sterling Grumman. The organization is headquartered in Amherst, Massachusetts. It continues to fund projects of organizations which promote peace and social justice.
This collection contains the administrative files from the CarEth Foundation, and files from a wide variety of peace groups which had applied for funding from the foundation. These files often contain information about these groups and their projects. The CarEth Foundation has had a close relationship with the Peace Development Fund, and files from that organization are included in this collection as well.
Files of applications are arranged in several alphabetical sequences, by name of peace group. Administrative files from the CarEth Foundation follow in a separate sequence. Files of the Peace Development Fund follow in a third set of files organized alphabetically.
The Swarthmore College Peace Collection is the official repository for these papers/records.
Gift of CarEth Foundation, 1999 [Acc. 99A-057].
