Charles H. McTier

Charles H. "Pete" McTier helped form the Robert W. Woodruff Foundation, one of four foundations he led during a career in philanthropic administration.

McTier signed the checks that provided hundreds of millions of dollars to a variety of causes across Georgia: education, health, child welfare and youth programs, the elderly, cultural institutions and the arts, civic projects, economic development, and the environment.

Now retired from the foundations' day-to-day operations, he remains a trustee of three of them and also serves his alma mater as a trustee.
