Webinar

Who should attend

Community foundations staff and other colleagues interested in learning more about this special network, and ways to get involved.

Description

You’ve successfully attracted Donor-Advised Funds and developed solid relationships with those founding donors. But now they’re asking for help with tougher issues such as preparing heirs to be responsible givers, dealing with geographic dispersion and generational differences in giving, and improving family communications and problem-solving skills. (If they’re not asking now, they will be soon…). How will your foundation respond, and should it?

On this Spark Session, your peers will offer advice for building on strong donor stewardship practices and philanthropic services to offer a range of family philanthropy services. The webinar will also preview NCFP’s two new tools for community foundations:  a self-assessment of your readiness to offer effective family philanthropy services, and a Family Philanthropy Playbook to help you define, plan, and launch those services.

Special offer

We are pleased to offer representatives from community foundations that are not yet part of the Community Foundations Family Philanthropy Network one complimentary registration to a Spark Session of your choice.

What participants said:

NCFP consistently and brilliantly presents the very best education to family foundations and donor advisor funders. Though I actively participate in educational opportunities with many organizations in the philanthropic center it is those offered by NCFP that drill deeper into issues, savor the nuances of family grantmaking and produce products that motivate and inspire in an all embracing understanding of families and the dynamics that challenge them.

The Family Philanthropy Webinar series is a wonderful resource, allowing us to "attend" sessions from all over and to share materials with other members of our foundation. The transcripts of the sessions are also a valuable resource. Thank you for these Webinars.
