Combining Philanthropy with Communication
Inherent in the working philosophy of The Abell Foundation is the
strong belief that a community faced with complicated and seemingly
intractable challenges is well served by research-based information.
To that end, the Foundation, combining philanthropy with communication,
continues to publish background studies of selected issues on the
public agenda. In each case, experts have been retained to research
and write, and the Foundation has distributed their findings in print
and on the Internet, targeting elected officials, leaders in business,
industry and academia, and the citizenry.
The following is a listing of our eight most current publications.
