The Donald W. Reynolds Foundation is a national philantrhopic organization founded in 1954 by the late media entrepreneur for whom it is named. Mr. Reynolds was the founder and principal owner of the Donrey Media Group, which he started in 1940 with the purchase of the Okmulgee Daily (OK) Times and the Southwest (AR) Times Record.
At the time of Mr. Reynolds’ death in 1993, his organization had grown to include 52 daily newspapers, 10 outdoor advertising companies, five cable television companies and one television station. The sale of the Donrey Media Group in 1993 provided for the Foundation endowment, making it one of the largest private foundations in the United States. It is headquartered in Las Vegas, Nevada.
We at the Donald W. Reynolds Section of Geriatric Medicine are grateful for Mr. Reynolds' and the board of directors' generosity and commitment to the care of our aging population.
