Norah L. Jones quoted in article “When Should Charities Throw In Together?”

The New York Times

Below is an excerpt:

When descendants move away — or disagree with one another on the mission — there are options.

Norah L. Jones, a partner at the law firm Quarles & Brady, said it was difficult to find another family foundation that shared the same goals. “It’s often hard enough to balance these things within one family,” she said.

But she has worked with families that want to find ways to collaborate on administrative matters or share office space.

She said she had also seen funding collaborations between foundations that work in a similar field. While these are often less formal than they would be between public charities, they can exist for a specific cause and then fall away.
