Because pride of country and promoting a replication of its successes drove my early philanthropy — concern with a diminishment of our national character is driving much of my philanthropy today. Education reform initiatives, public policy programs, advocacy forums, and constitutional education workshops now represent an increasing level of my philanthropic dollars.
