|Eleanor Belmont's Legacy
She was an actress who inspired Shaw's "Major Barbara" and the wife of financier August Belmont. She named a Triple Crown winner and founded the Metropolitan Opera Guild. And she cared passionately about New Yorkers who didn't have the advantages she had. She left her estate to The Trust, and today, grants from our Belmont Fund help showcase young musicians, locate homes for the homeless, and match volunteers with those who need them.
