Who decides the measures of success, and what are the conditions that promote meaningful and enduring progress? What does it mean to be effective not just as funders, but as family philanthropies?
In partnership with Open Impact, NCFP has been exploring these questions and is pleased to release our new guide to help you in your practice.
The NCFP Guide for Effective Family Philanthropy

It is intended to be a catalyst for reflection, intention, and a commitment to action from the family philanthropy field. Access the guide below.
