    Big Charitable Donors, Big Charitable Decisions

    Newport Beach Law Firm

    What surprised us most in our Forbes
    Insights study was something that also emerged among attendees at the Summit: not just the
    scope and scale of the wealth they plan to disburse, but how quickly they plan
    to do so.

    When it comes to charitable
    giving, you’ve got to think big. Big projects, big goals, and big problems.
    What better way to think big then to think like the very biggest players in the
    arena of charitable giving.

    A recent Forbes article offers some insights into the thoughts and
    intentions of uber-wealthy philanthropists. The grist for this journalistic
    mill was recently a summit held in New York. The article bears the catchy title
    of “How to Give Away A Billion Dollars.

    It’s worth reading the original
    article, if not only for a few reported mission statements. One thing to note
    is the tension between farsighted concerns and legacy in particular, against
    the desire to see immediate effect and business-like efficiency. This is a very
    real tension and just may affect how you go about your own charitable giving.

    Then again, you might be more
    concerned with the future of charitable giving, and there’s a companion piece
    for you titled “How The Next Generation Of Wealth Is
    Revolutionizing Philanthropy As We Know It
