About the Company: In the late 1970s when the Charles H. Revson Foundation began making grants, the end of the century seemed very far away, and none of us thought we would personally have the opportunity to assess our history through such a long lens. Early on, a consultant said to our board, “Imagine that you are reading about the foundation in a major magazine twenty years from now. What would you want that article to conclude?” Even then, it was clear to us that while the destination mattered a great deal, the quality of the journey mattered even more. Now, with the unexpected opportunity to reflect on the Foundation’s first twenty years, I see it less as a time to draw conclusions and more as a moment in time from which to “look backward for a while . . . to refresh the eye, to restore it,” in the words of one writer, “and to render it more fit for . . . looking forward."
