THE SAGE FOUNDATION.

March 12. 1907, Mrs. Russell Sage of New York announced that she had set aside the sura of $10000,000 to be known as the Sage foundation aud to be devoted to the Improvement of the social and living conditions in the United States. As trustees ■, she appointed Robert W. I DeForest, Cleveland II. j Dodge. Daniel C. Gili man, John M. Glenn, I Miss Helen Gould, Mrs. William B. Rice and Miss Louise L. Schuyler. Following is a part of the statement given out by Mrs. Sage as to the object of the gift: "I have set aside $10,000.000 for the endowment of this foundation. I ts object is the improvement of social and living conditions in the United States. The means to that end will include research, publication, education, the establishment and maintenance of charitable and beneficial activities, agencies and institutions and the aid of any such activities, agencies and institutions already established.

"It will be within the scope of the foundation to investigate and study the causes of adverse social conditions. Including Ignorance, poverty and

vice, to suggest how these conditions can be remedied or ameliorated and to put in operation anyappropriate means to that end.

"It will also be within the scope of the foundation to establish any new agency necessary to carry out any of its conclusions and equally to contribute to the resources of any existing agencies which are doing efficient and satisfactory work, just as the present general education fund, organized to promote higher education, is aiding existing colleges and universities.

"While its scope is broad, It should, preferably, not undertake to do within that scope what is now being done and likely to be effectively done byother individuals or by other agencies with less resources. It will be its aim to take up the larger and more difficult problems and to take them up, so far as possible, in such a manner as to secure co-operation and aid in their solution.

"In some instances it may wisely Initiate movements with the expectation of having them maintain themselves unaided after once being started. In other instances It may start movements with the expectation of carrying them on itself. The income only will be used for its charitable purposes because the foundation is to be permanent and its action continuous. It may, however, make investments for social betterment which themselves produce Income.

"While having its headquarters In New York city, where Mr. Sage and I have lived and where social problems are most pressing and complicated, partly by reason of its extent and partly because It is the por"t of entry for about a million immigrants a year, the foundation will be national in its scope and in its activities.*'
