"I love the idea that KFG is demystifying the principle of leading by example" by facilitating the passing on of generational wisdom within the realm of philanthropy and providing a space for mutual respect between generations to grow. Why should next-gen philanthropists make the same mistakes their parents and grandparents did? It's an ambitious goal to try and tackle, but I believe in KFG."
