“I have always loved Warren Buffett’s sentiment that ‘someone is sitting in the shade today because someone planted a tree a long time ago.’ It is incredibly inspiring and gratifying to work with mission-driven people and organizations who are making great things happen here and now, while also thinking about how their work will impact future generations.”
