NCFP’s Community Foundations Family Philanthropy Network supports the special roles community foundations play with philanthropic families as a trusted resource and partner. A National Advisory Committee, chaired by Alicia Philipp, President of the Community Foundation for Greater Atlanta, provides strategic guidance. This Featured Search provides a compilation of key resources coming out of this thriving peer network.
Included here is a complete collection of Spark Session webinar replays, issue briefs, and other resources that have been created as part of this network. Please note that all community foundation subscribers also have access to our Community Foundations Online Toolbox including a wide variety of sample donor materials, next gen engagement plans, business plans, job descriptions, and other tools and templates created by the network’s subscribing community foundations. For additional information and to receive access to the Toolbox, contact a member of the NCFP programs team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
