The Learning by Giving Foundation, created by Doris Buffett, combines real world philanthropy education with actual community giving. It enables students to experience the impact of strategic philanthropy by making sound investments in their own communities. The Foundation provides grants to fund these donations, and pairs young philanthropists with professors to teach effective giving. First Republic has been involved with the Foundation for six years, and is an admirer of their work. The Bank is proud to support the organization for the long term — as the Foundation develops the next generation of philanthropists and community leaders, who will in turn inspire those around them.
