    Description:

    Emerson Collective is a non-profit organization, which also serves as the de facto Family Office for Laurene Powell Jobs, widow of Steve Jobs, whose net worth is estimated at nearly $18B. Established and led by Jobs, Emerson centers its work on education, immigration reform, the environment, and other social justice initiatives. Emerson Collective also has significant investments in media, from movie-production companies such as Anonymous Content, to start-ups such as The California Sunday Magazine. Emerson recently bought a majority stake in The Atlantic magazine. The organization has also provided support to several nonprofit journalism outlets, including the Marshall Project and ProPublica.
