Community Foundation Spark Session: Building Blocks for Successful Family Philanthropy Services

There are resources available from this event.

To access, please LOGIN or JOIN THE FAMILY.

An increasing number of consultants, wealth management firms, Donor-Advised Fund sponsors, and more are positioning themselves as trusted guides in families’ philanthropic journeys. They’re answering families’ questions about social impact, values alignment, successor generation preparation and engagement, and more.  

Will your community foundation maintain a competitive advantage in that marketplace? Will you be positioned as a trusted resource beyond grants to local nonprofits? Will you be able to retain relationships with successor generations? 

This webinar will give you a window into:  how community foundations of all sizes are developing programs and services for generous families, the common building blocks for early wins, and the practical tools available through NCFP’s Community Foundation Network.
