Research from groups like Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors and the National Center for Family Philanthropy shows that time-limited foundations are trending up, both in the U.S. and globally. Foundations in the environment/conservation area are more likely to be time-limited than foundations addressing other types of issues.
On our next members-only conversation, we’ll talk with representatives from three time-limited foundations — Town Creek Foundation (sunset: 2019), The John Merck Fund (sunset: 2022), and Chorus Foundation (sunset 2024) about the reasons their boards chose to spend-down and the strategies they used or are using to manage the process with grantees and other funders.
Phone call-ins are welcome, but we highly encourage participation by video – let’s take advantage of technology to put names to faces and forge deeper connections, even when we can’t all be in the same room!
