A Memorial Gift Honoring Richard S. Abramson
A true friend, partner, mentor, and inspirational leader, Richard S. Abramson had entered his second term as president of The Washington Institute when he passed away in 2016 after a long, fearless battle with illness. Long before he became president, Richard was instrumental in shaping the Institute into the most well-respected Middle East think tank in Washington, D.C.
Your gift to the Richard S. Abramson Memorial Fund advances the Institute’s work, a mission in which he invested decades of his life. Richard believed firmly that U.S. policy in the Middle East could be improved through cutting-edge research and advanced scholarship: that the Institute’s ideas and actions would make a positive impact in the United States, the region, and the world.
