We’re dedicated to learning how to give as well as possible. Here’s what we’ve done so far.
Starting in 2012, we sought out information on the history of philanthropy as well as what foundations focus on today. We also spent substantial time getting to know established philanthropists and foundations, learning about how they approach their work and in some cases co-funding projects with them. We continue to learn about philanthropy’s track record through our History of Philanthropy project, and about other foundations’ work by periodically catching up with their donors, leaders, and staff.
