We have three funds, in addition to our general operating fund, where
concentration of resources and work over the next five years would
provide wide public benefit.
Our by laws, with IRS concurrence, state that
no more than 15% of the Foundation's revenues can be spent on its
administration and operations. We encourage you to direct your
contribution to one of the following areas where at least 85% is thus to
be spent on Value programs:
The intent of this fund is to develop a
national center for public training and education in value techniques.
Our first project under this fund was to support the Miles research
library at the University of Wisconsin. Contributions to its operating
fund endowment are welcome.
The primary focus of this fund is to introduce
value methodology into curricula at the university level. Funds are
needed to endow chairs to teach Value, provide scholorships to deserving
students, develop textbooks and curricula, and to provide films,
videotapes and other tools to support classroom instruction.
This fund will be used to develop and
document applications of value methodology in new areas (i.e., health
care, law, etc.) and create a body of literature and examples to
cultivate the interest of management and employees in these fields. The
Foundation accepts grants to this fund to perform demonstration studies.
