• Look forward to reading this report and thanks for the summary. The quote by Christopher Oeschli on Atlantic’s spending policy being driven by impact rather than budget is a great example of what the National Center for Family Philanthropy has begun referring to as “strategic lifespan.” Thanks to the support of The Quixote Foundation, we are developing a variety of tools and discussion forums for foundations adopting the strategic lifespan approach. Some of our past resources on this topic are collected here: https://www.ncfp.org/resource/splendid-legacy/view.html?module=5&unit=1. We also have developed a number of case studies of family foundations that have spent out, and happy to share with any that are interested.
