Community Foundation Spark Session: Guiding Donors on the How and Now of Philanthropy

There are resources available from this event.

To access, please LOGIN or JOIN THE FAMILY.

Our communities face many complex and interconnected challenges. Most require us to confront racial, economic, and other inequities. We’re also living in an era of massive wealth creation and wealth transfer. More donors have the resources to meaningfully address those challenges. But the how and now of their philanthropy matters more than ever.

Community foundations have an incredible opportunity—and perhaps a moral obligation—to help donors reexamine the purpose, pace, power, and practices of their philanthropy. This webinar will feature the experiences of community foundation staff who have built the skills to coach up to donors, artfully question their assumptions, and show them new paths to effective family philanthropy. You’ll walk away with tips and tools for a more insightful and influential donor advising practice.

Hosted in partnership with:

Note: This webinar will be open to NCFP’s community foundation network, members of AdNet, and community foundation members of regional associations who subscribe to NCFP’s services.
