In keeping with the goal of enabling our Partners to be recognized as the leading local, trusted, resource for family philanthropy:

  • NCFP encourages its Community Foundation Subscribers to share any family philanthropy-related resources that they may develop (e.g., sample investment, spending, or conflict-of-interest policies; articles; research; and stories) with the greater Family Philanthropy Online community. If you are interested in promoting and sharing your own content through community foundation family philanthropy curated resources, please contact NCFP or provide us the name, title, and contact information of the staff member in your organization with whom we may develop such content with for distribution.
  • In addition, NCFP encourages Partner Subscribers to suggest any useful tools or information from other sources that may be of value to family philanthropists and Knowledge Center users.


  • Family Philanthropy Online is a non-exclusive, subscription service provided by the National Center for Family Philanthropy. NCFP reserves the right to offer or deny subscriptions to any and all organizations, institutions, and individuals, as it determines to be appropriate.
