The Founder’s Hopes: From Values to Vision

This introductory chapter to ‘Splendid Legacy’ asks philanthropic founders to consider several key questions: What are your underlying values and motivations and how do they shape your philanthropic goals and dreams? What are you trying to accomplish? How would you like to be involved in and manage your giving? And how would you like to bring others into this work – including members of your family?
