Succession planning contemplates how a foundation will be administered after the current decision makers are no longer able to be involved: it focuses on who is going to make decisions and how those decisions will be made. If a foundation is going to survive to the next generation, putting in place a succession plan is essential for a successful transition.

Succession planning requires:

-  identifying the donor’s goals for the foundation,

- identifying proper leadership who can carry out those goals,

- putting in place the legal rules to give the successors the authority to carry out the goals, and

- guidance and education for the successor leaders.
