The Atlantic Philanthropies foundation released a booklet entitled “Atlantic Insights: Giving While Living.” The booklet explores foundation founder Chuck Feeney’s philanthropic worldview, which centers on using a limited-life foundation to increase impact by freeing up funds for more rapid deployment. All told, more than $8 billion in grants were disbursed to nearly 2,000 grant recipients, spread among a number of countries. Atlantic Philanthropies was known for the attention it paid to the institutions to which it gave, carefully designing the weaning process with many of its longer-term grantees. This booklet is meant to be the first in a series, as the foundation seeks to share lessons learned before closing its doors in 2020. Read more here.
