We seek to inspire others with the story of Mr. Volcker's commitment to public service. Mr. Volcker passed away in 2019 after serving almost 30 years in the federal government, culminating in his historic two terms as Chairman of the Federal Reserve. He envisioned this organization as the steward of his legacy and the vehicle for championing his passion for public service in the next generation.
