“I’ve known about the Satell Institute since it was first conceived and have witnessed its roster of impressive members grow and evolve. 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.”
