Core Values of a Splendid Legacy

Family philanthropies that articulate and agree on core values are stronger and more sustainable over time. Values enliven our programming and operations, give common ground and purpose to family and board interactions, and ensure all choices are consistent with underlying principles.

Values build and strengthen a legacy in families. This chapter from Splendid Legacy 2: The Guide to Creating and Re-creating Your Family Foundation shares ideas to get you started with your foundation’s values, or revisit the ones that you have now as part of your own family legacy.
