About this grant

This grant provides continued general purpose support to the Philanthropy Roundtable, a national association of 650 foundations, families, individual philanthropists, corporate giving programs, trust officers, and estate officers. The grantee exists to help donors achieve their charitable goals and protect their freedom to give as they choose.
