Atlantic Philanthropies Founding Chairman Chuck Feeney’s approach to philanthropy, characterised by personal engagement, modesty, pragmatism, good-value investments and his belief in Giving While Living.
A limited life foundation dedicated to bringing about lasting changes in the lives of disadvantaged and vulnerable people.
In keeping with the "Giving While Living" philosophy of our founder, Charles “Chuck” Feeney, we believe in making large investments to help solve urgent social problems now. To that end, we will become the largest foundation in history to spend down our endowment. We plan to complete active grantmaking by 2016 and close our doors by 2020.
