Sharna Goldseker, September 2015
The founders of private foundations often have a story—a formative experience or insight that inspired them to become active philanthropists. In this podcast, Sharna Goldseker discusses The Grandparent Legacy Project, a tool to help you share your narrative that informed your personal identity as well as your philanthropy. Although many founders take these stories for granted, assuming that they’re “ancient history” as far as the next generation is concerned, they’re anything but. Your personal narrative, and the act of passing it on, is actually critical to conveying your philanthropic legacy to your family and enlisting the next generation to carry it forward.
