"Resource for Emerging Philanthropics"


An emerging generation of entrepreneurs is transforming the world of philanthropy — making news with sizable donations or establishing foundations. "Giving Back," a 45-minute video, outlines what successful entrepreneurs should consider when forming a charitable entity.

Produced by The Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation, the video features footage of Mr. Kauffman discussing his introduction to and thoughts about philanthropy. Board members also offer insights and lessons learned from setting up a foundation. It's available free of charge. Request a copy from Pam Kearney at pkearney@emkf.org or by calling (816) 932-1046.
