The Terrance Keenan Institute for Emerging Leaders in Health Philanthropy launched in 2010 in honor of a giant in philanthropy, the late Terrance Keenan. It is, therefore, fitting that our fellowship experience began with a study of Keenan’s writings, including The Promise at Hand: Prospects for Foundation Leadership in the 1990s. In it, Keenan names nine characteristics of great foundations, inviting foundations to deeper levels of self-reflection as they seek to be responsible stewards of the resources to which they have been entrusted. As an extension of the institute, we decided to turn this lens on ourselves and look at ways our foundations were putting these ideas into action.
