The National Center for Family Philanthropy (NCFP) was founded in 1997 in response to the need for a national source of knowledge and expertise that advocates for the value of family philanthropy. Grounded by the perspective of donor families, NCFP has helped define this burgeoning field and raise awareness of its unique issues.
Who We Are
The National Center for Family Philanthropy’s mission is to promote philanthropic values, vision, and excellence across generations of donors and donor families. Our understanding and experience with the very personal act of giving ensures that these donors and those who support them have access to the highest quality information.
Who We Serve
The National Center for Family Philanthropy is the only nonprofit resource dedicated exclusively to families who give and those that work with them. We firmly believe that family participation enriches philanthropy and that philanthropy strengthens families. It is through these shared values that we establish fruitful partnerships with community foundations, advisors, philanthropy serving organizations, and financial institutions who support donor families.
