Margaret A. Cargill Foundation

Seems it still pays to pick your parents carefully.  Margaret Cargill died a few years back, leaving behind an estate that today is worth a cool $8 billion dollars.  In 1865, her grandfather, William Cargill, founded the company that we now know as Cargill, the largest privately held business in the United States.

An article in the StarTribune discussed the launching of the Margaret A. Cargill Foundation. Given the current funding priorities we should watch for a sudden increase in the number of environmental relief art projects for the elderly without access to quality care held at The American Swedish Institute.

Seriously, "alla de bästa" to this newly launched foundation.  That’s “all the best” in Swedish.
