"The Foundation Desk Reference is a one-of-a-kind, wonderful tool for both experts and newcomers who govern or lead private foundations. I always keep it handy for quick references and for clarification on important questions in my day to day work.

Mason Rummel, James Graham Brown Foundation, Louisville, KY

"I consider the Foundation Desk Reference a 'must have' for new board members and staff. I've even given it as a welcome gift to new leaders at other foundations. It is not only a wonderful 'crash course' in the language of private foundations, but also a handy, ongoing resource.

Dr. Jan Young, The Assisi Foundation of Memphis, Inc., Memphis, TN

"Author Ben White helps foundations avoid problems that can arise from ignorance or misunderstanding of current laws and regulations. The Desk Reference should be a part of every foundation's reference, and it should be reviewed often.

John Stephenson, J. Bulow Campbell Foundation, Atlanta, GA
