The Rockefeller Brothers Fund (RBF), (Philanthropy for an Interdependent World), is an international philanthropic organisation created and run by members of the Rockefeller family. It was set up in New York City in 1940 as the primary philanthropic vehicle of the five Rockefeller brothers: John D. Rockefeller, III, Nelson, Laurance, Winthrop and David.[1] It is distinct from the Rockefeller Foundation, which has more independence from family control.

Its headquarters are located at 475 Riverside Drive, New York, which is also the location family's fourth-generation philanthropic institution, the Rockefeller Family Fund.

The current president of the Fund is Stephen B. Heintz and its chairman is Richard Rockefeller, the fifth child of David Rockefeller.
