Time Limited Philanthropy


The Center is continuing to assemble a library of online reports, case studies, and other resources related to time limited philanthropy. This type of philanthropy, also referred to as "limited life" or "spend down", refers to foundations who are choosing to spend out all of their funds by a certain date. This entails spending at a much larger rate than perpetual foundations, and begs the question of which is best for the greater good of society. The Center seeks to explore and study this question and the benefits and drawbacks of time limited foundations through research, seminars, and scholarly study.

Included in the library are documents produced by the Center and by other institutions, including foundations.
