Community Foundation Spark Session: Community Foundations in the Evolving Landscape of Family Philanthropy Services

There are resources available from this event.

To access, please LOGIN or JOIN THE FAMILY.

The demand for philanthropic advice is increasing, spurred in part by historic wealth creation, intergenerational transfer of wealth and aspirations for purpose-driven lives and businesses. Moreover, we are witnessing a rising numbers of donors and their families leveraging diverse philanthropic vehicles and tools. Community foundations are well-positioned to provide best in class advice and accordingly, are eager to explore how to best position themselves within a growing market of philanthropic advisors and consultants.

How do affluent families and their advisors view community foundations as potential partners? What are the trends in advisory firms building out their own philanthropic expertise or subcontracting with others? How can community foundations better define and communicate their value proposition in an increasingly crowded field of philanthropic and family advising expertise? Join NCFP’s President & CEO, Nick Tedesco and Jennifer Touchet, Vice President of Personal and Family Philanthropy at the Greater Houston Community Foundation for a lively conversation about increasing community foundations’ relevance to affluent families and their advisors.
