Community Foundation Spark Session: Business Models for Family Philanthropy (Round 2)

Your community foundation wants to provide more intensive services to multi-generation and multi-branch families. But how will you define your customer segments and their goals? What unique value proposition will you deliver? How will you develop capacity and partners? And, what will be your model for revenues and costs?

The community foundation field is experimenting with a variety of answers to those questions. In this Spark Session, you’ll learn two contrasting business models for delivering family philanthropy services. As with a similar session in August 2017, the models will be part of a larger set of case studies in NCFP’s upcoming Family Philanthropy Playbook. This Spark Session webinar, and the recording and related materials, will be only available to NCFP’s subscribing community foundations.

Please note this Spark Session is only available to those that belong to the Community Foundations Family Philanthropy Network. Not yet a member? Please contact for more information.
