Community Foundation Spark Session: Working With Enterprising Families

A family business’s philanthropy has many goals. Family legacy and values, family and business reputation, employee retention, development of successors and younger generations, and tax-wise planning are just a few. The family often involves multiple advisors, formal and informal, in achieving those goals. How can a community foundation be a more effective partner to the multi-generation family, their business, and their advisors? And, can the foundation also successfully connect all of those players to important community needs and opportunities?

In this webinar, community foundation staff and an experienced family enterprise consultant will discuss their work at the intersections of family business, family philanthropy, family governance, and more. 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.
