While transparency is an important value in principle, what do you do when your foundation’s privacy is also your family’s privacy? How do we balance the need for public accountability with a family’s right to privacy? What do the tough but important questions regarding transparency and accountability mean for family philanthropy and how can foundations think strategically about these questions? This webinar will feature a discussion with leaders from the Russell Family Foundation, who have developed an internal tool for considering all levels of transparency in family philanthropy – between the foundation and the public, between board and staff, and between generations.
