A reader asks, “Unless I missed it, I believe it has been many years since you talked about your foundation (foundations?) and the passive investment approach you use for it/them. Do you still buy index funds? Has anything changed? I enjoy hearing about that part of your life and am thinking about setting up something similar.”
The Kennon & Green Foundation is rarely discussed. On a handful of occasions, when I think it might help a specific cause heighten its profile and raise more money for a good cause, I might highlight an individual grant; nevertheless, a vast majority of the foundation’s efforts will not be discussed or disclosed. Giving should be done privately, behind closed doors, without a lot of fanfare. Please don’t write and solicit donations or ask for more information because your message will be blacklisted.
