Exit is inevitably less inspiring than entrance. When a foundation opens a new field office, launches a new programme or enters a new country, it’s always a challenge and an opportunity. Conversely, when it closes the office, it’s a sad reminder that everything comes to an end. Exit is always much more difficult to justify than entrance. There is always some unfinished business, some pressing need not responded to, a number of grantees left out in the cold.
