The Foundation of the 21st Century

You seek lasting change. But is your foundation built for that purpose? Is the traditional grantmaking model up to the task? Some foundation leaders think not. Increasingly, they are considering ways to leverage all of their assets to achieve their philanthropic goals. Among the most daring, the FB Heron Foundation has committed all of its endowment capital to advancing its poverty-fighting mission. The Walton Family Foundation considers impact investments to be an important tool in advancing its conservation goals. And the Case Foundation, dedicated to market-driven solutions, is building the ecosphere for impact investing, a potential trillion-dollar market. Hear how these and other leaders are maximizing the impact of each foundation dollar.
