The National Center for Family Philanthropy (NCFP) is the only national nonprofit dedicated exclusively to families who give and those who work with them.

NCFP Fellows Mary Mountcastle (left) and June Wilson (right) talk with Russell Family Foundation Board Member Sarah Cavanaugh at the 2015 National Forum on Family Philanthropy in Seattle.

We provide the resources, expertise and support families need to transform their values into effective giving that makes a lasting impact on the communities they serve. Together, we make great things happen.
