Ambassador Richard C. Holbrooke served as Chairman of the Asia Society Board of Trustees from 2002- 2009, stepping down from the chairmanship when he was appointed the Special Representative for Afghanistan and Pakistan by the Obama administration. During his tenure, Ambassador Holbrooke oversaw a dramatic expansion of the scope and scale of Asia Society activities, and was a stalwart supporter of Asia Society’s Asia 21 Young Leaders Initiative. He understood – as did our founder John D. Rockefeller 3rd – that the challenges across the Asia Pacific could be addressed most effectively by identifying and empowering a new generation of leaders. Asia 21 has blossomed in the last decade, and is now the region’s most powerful and diverse network of young leaders.
Ambassador Holbrooke died suddenly in 2010, and the Richard C. Holbrooke Young Leaders Fund was established with a $250,000 bequest from his estate to support the continuation of his vision, and in particular the Asia 21 Young Leaders Initiative. Donations to the Fund support the costs associated with the annual Asia 21 Young Leaders Summit and activities throughout the year.
We encourage you to become a part of this important initiative, and to honor Ambassador Holbrooke’s legacy, with a donation to the Richard C. Holbrooke Young Leaders Fund.
