Welters and her husband, Anthony, an executive with UnitedHealth Group, co-founded the AnBryce Foundation in 1995, which provides academic and leadership programs for underserved youth. She is currently the Virginia-based group's president and chair. She also serves on the Library of Congress Madison Council and is a trustee at the Brookings Institute, the Aspen Institute and the National Symphony Orchestra. Additionally, she and her husband bundled between $200,000 and $500,000 for President Barack Obama's campaign last year. They personally donated $100,000 for his inauguration in January, and bundled $300,000 for his inauguration committee, according to Public Citizen. </div></div>
