The Robina Foundation Legacy Report started with a question: what lessons might a limited-life foundation, smaller in scale and more modest than some of its well-known national counterparts, offer to donors contemplating the best structure and opertions for their philanthropy? The report focuses on the grantee and board experience, not on the investment, financial, or procedural aspects of managing a limited-life foundation. It does not attempt to assess Robina's impact, though Robina engaged consultants to evaluate many of the programs it funded. Rather, it is an attempt to chronicle one model of a sharply-focused, limited-life foundation as seen by its board members and grantees.
