“I’ve known about the Satell Institute since it was first conceived and have witnessed its roster of impressive members grow and evolve. We’re at a seminal moment for CSR work right now, and there has been tremendous enthusiasm building over the past five years. We were drawn to the Satell Institute because of their stellar reputation, but also because they are fully endowed, which is important. A lot of nonprofits can get bogged down with the (very necessary but time-consuming) work of constant fundraising. Being fully-endowed allows us to free up time to focus on the issues.”
