"Part of the reason this project is so important now is that so many family foundations are new to this work, having been founded or at least organized since the beginning of this millennium. Many philanthropic families are in a moment of transition where there's new leadership that needs to come in, or there's going to be a new generation of family, or there's a strategic plan to look at what impact do you really want to make, and how will you know you're making it. So, there are so many moments in time where we think this research will be very helpful.”
