Reva and her husband, David were major funders of the arts including: the Logan Center for the Arts at the University of Chicago, the Jazz Loft Project, the series "Jazz" on PBS and much more. They were also supporters of journalism and the free press, helping to establish the non-profit Center for Investigative Reporting as a leader in its field, supporting PBS "Frontline" and sponsoring the annual Logan Symposium for Journalism at UC Berkeley.
