How has the field of family philanthropy evolved over the past 15 years? And where is it headed in the future? Join this wide-ranging conversation with NCFP President Virginia Esposito and the current and former board chairs of the National Center for Family Philanthropy as they discuss issues, challenges, and breakthroughs in family philanthropy. Through their stories and observations you will discover which trends are gaining momentum and catch a glimpse of where the field might be headed. The rise of impact investing and collaboration, increased geographic dispersion and diversity of interests among family members, and the emergence of a new set of national and global challenges are just a few of the areas that will be touched upon.

I find the webinars to be engaging and well prepared. I always find some choice nuggets to jot down and reflect upon. A big “thank you” to NCFP for pulling these together.

It was fascinating to me that two of the four presenters, when asked for closing remarks, said to have more fun with this work. A good reminder not to take ourselves too seriously!

I think Carrie Avery’s info on how her family brings their next gen on board and who they bring on was great.
