For me, the key to philanthropy is the three T's: time, talent and treasure. So much of philanthropy is though of in terms of treasure – in other words, money – but the real success of the Genesis Foundation lies in embracing talent and nurturing that talent, working as a team with our partners and creating a network that continually supports every artist with whom the Foundation has worked over the years.

Genesis Sixteen is the most overt form of structured, creative learning that we’ve created. Its benefit ratio – impact in relation to amount spent – is very high. Harry elevates everyone he works with.
