What responsibilities do family philanthropies have to steward their funds intended for public benefit? Who are they accountable to in their pursuit of effective family philanthropy?

Embracing accountability and continuous reflection are critical for effective stewardship. In this webinar we will discuss how donor families can thoughtfully steward funds throughout their philanthropic lifespan. We’ll consider original wealth creation and donor intent, learn how to implement inclusive governance, and explore the opportunity to engage your served community in your philanthropy.

Join us as we navigate the complexities of taking ownership of the real impacts of the work on all the people within the ecosystem in which your philanthropy exists. 

This webinar is part of the 21st-Century Governance series within the Fundamentals of Family Philanthropy webinar programming. You may also watch part one 21st-Century Governance Part One: Participatory and Collaborative Operations and Strategies, and part two 21st-Century Governance Part Two: Strategically Using Partnerships and Collaborating for Systems Change.
