CEO Reflections on the Future of Foundation Philanthropy

This collection of essays shares reflections from eight foundation CEOs in response to the findings of CEP’s 2016 research report, The Future of Foundation Philanthropy. These thoughtful reflections are from leaders of foundations ranging in size, scope, and mission, including Ford Foundation, the David and Lucile Packard Foundation, and the Hawai’i Community Foundation.

CEP did not offer suggestions for what CEOs should write about, nor did CEP edit the content of their writing.
