“A respect for donor intent is essential for philanthropic integrity,” said Adam Meyerson, president of the Philanthropy Roundtable, an association dedicated to protecting benefactors’ interests. However, he added, “You’re not serving donor intent if you go bankrupt.”
The Philanthropy Roundtable is committed to preserving, strengthening, and celebrating the principle of donor intent. To that end, we publish a range of materials, from practical, how-to guides for living donors to principled justifications of donor intent.
