While we believe that each family foundation is unique to the family members behind it, we also believe that they all have one thing in common: a story. Founders often take their stories for granted, assuming the next generation will think their narratives are ancient history. But we’ve heard time and again that it’s more than the story itself that’s valuable, it’s the activity of passing the story from one generation to the next that is the prime step in conveying family and philanthropic legacies. The Grandparent Legacy Project is a resource that helps you communicate your story — your legacy — across the generations and includes a book of 15 grandparent’s legacies, an audio CD to hear their stories, and a workbook to help you convey your own legacy.
