This is the third in a planned series of reports on the concluding years of The Atlantic Philanthropies, the largest endowed philanthropy ever to go deliberately out of business. The report covers 2011-2012, two difficult years of judgment, planning, and adjustment. As each year passes, more and more decisions become irreversible and Atlantic has begun to feel a kind of pressure rarely experienced at perpetual foundations: They are making decisions that can’t be un-made.
