Larry and Amy Robbins finance Unicef fund


The Amy and Larry Robbins Foundation, named for the husband-wife team that launched Glenview Capital Management, has partnered with Unicef to establish the Mercury Fund, an investment vehicle designed to expedite financial assistance for global humanitarian crises.

The Fund was established with an initial gift of $5 million from the foundation, and the Glenview couple will play an active role in the fund's stewardship. The Amy and Larry Robbins Foundation has, in the past few years, spent millions of dollars supporting its favored charities, including the Knowledge is Power Program, a network of free open-enrollment college-preparatory public schools
