Donor legacy statement (Robert and Patricia Switzer Foundation)

This Donor Legacy Statement communicates the original motivating forces for the establishment of the Robert and Patricia Switzer Foundation as an environmental foundation, the values and interests of the founding donors, and the lessons learned from the early years of the Foundation’s operation to guide future stewardship and management of the Foundation. The statement is based on a series of interviews with Pat Switzer, family trustees and close colleagues of Robert Switzer and a review of Bob’s Switzer’s speeches and writings for the Robert and Patricia Switzer Foundation.
