Should Philanthropies Be Permanent?
Let the good times roll, no? Maybe not. When it comes to grantmaking foundations and whether they should roll on forever, there are mixed opinions. Anecdotal though it may be, history shows that, even during their lifetimes, founders of institutions of charitable giving often have their missions overtaken or redirected by staff, trustees and, especially, by family members who are determined to advance a different vision of the good than the one intended by the founder. The Center for Civil Society will take on the subject of the proper relationship between legacy, longevity, and donor intent in the second episode of its Givers, Doers, and Thinkers Webinar Series, scheduled for Monday, October 18th, at 3:00PM (ET). Hosted by Center director Jack Fowler, it will feature three important thinkers (and doers!) who are experts in the matter of philanthropic endurance: Dick DeVos, Heather Higgins, and John J. Miller.
