History in the Making Award Dinner

Honoring Barbara and Ray Dalio in Conversation with David Rubenstein.


On June 4, Greenwich Historical Society will present its History in the Making Award to philanthropists Barbara and Ray Dalio.  David Rubinstein,  Co-Founder and Co-Executive Chairman of The Carlyle Group, philanthropist, and noted interviewer, will  lead a conversation on the Dalio’s journey in philanthropy.  The award will be presented by 2019 honoree, former PepsiCo CEO Indra Nooyi.

Barbara Dalio serves as Director of Dalio Philanthropies, an enterprise supporting her family’s social impact endeavors, with particular interest in public education in Connecticut and efforts that enable young people and educators to achieve their full potential. Recently, Barbara co-founded The Partnership for Connecticut, a public-private partnership to help disengaged and disconnected youth and young adults access the educational and career opportunities they need to succeed in life. Her husband Ray Dalio is the founder and co-chairman of investment firm Bridgewater Associates, one of the world’s largest hedge funds. Together, the Dalios signed the Giving Pledge, vowing to donate more than half of their fortune to charitable causes within their lifetime.

In recognizing the Dalio’s leadership and celebrating their commitment to community and education, the Historical Society acknowledges he Dalio’s important place in a long history of  Greenwich philanthropists who have given of themselves to make important positive impact on the world.

The Dalio’s are the eighth recipients of the Historical Society’s History in the Making Award, which was established in 2003 to recognize individuals from our community who are the history makers of our own time. Former awardees were Indra Nooyi, Derek Boothby, Thomas Foley, Curt Welling, Marie and Charlene Von Saher and Lewis Lehrman.

We hope you will join us to recognize the generosity and philanthropic leadership of our 2020 honorees. Proceeds from this year’s event will support the Greenwich Historical Society’s commitment to education, with a particular focus on expanding our Title 1 School programs.
