Celebrating Milestones in Family Philanthropy

Family foundations celebrating their 20th, 40th, 50th or 60th anniversaries have found creative ways to honor the giving legacy of the donor and subsequent generations, while also celebrating the importance and potential of their nonprofit partners. This Teleconference features the stories of two family foundations who took advantage of milestone celebrations to accomplish the twin goals of honoring family legacy and inspiring and recognizing their community of grantee partners.

I only participate in the topics I’m really interested in. Due to my being selective, combined with the variety of offerings, these teleconferences always hit a home run in my book. Having helped prepare my boss to be a presenter in an NCFP teleconference, I can appreciate how much work goes into making them crisp and useful to the audience.


NCFP’s Family Philanthropy Webinar series is a wonderful resource, allowing us to “attend” sessions from all over and to share materials with other members of our foundation. The transcripts of the sessions are also a valuable resource. Thank you for these webinars!

Food for thought for the various ways to acknowledge upcoming milestones at our foundation. For instance, one of the presenters mentioned they held a gathering in New Mexico. This started me thinking about how our donor was from New Mexico, so perhaps we can fold his roots into whatever we end up doing for our milestone event. It hadn’t occurred to me before hearing this on the call.


I could have listened to Claire (Peeps) for another hour. She has so much to say and says it with such clarity and good energy. It was fascinating to hear about the factors that shaped the two-day retreat.
