Many years ago we pledged to each other that a majority of our wealth would be given away to charity. Through our foundation, we look forward to continuing our support for education, international economic development, and environmental conservation. We are strong believers in measuring the impact of our philanthropy. We are excited about the opportunities to exchange knowledge and learn from others in this group about how to be most effective in our giving.
