In the introduction to “Generations of Giving,” NCFP’s seminal study of multi-generational family philanthropy, lead author Kelin Gersick writes that “success in family philanthropy is measured in part by the family members’ commitment to the foundation’s work, the satisfaction they take in doing that work together, and the foundation’s ability to evolve and remain vital from one generation to the next.” Many families find that commitment and satisfaction in their shared philanthropy is directly correlated to the efforts they take to educate and train board and family members about their roles and responsibilities — and about the many grantmaking options available to them. This webinar features examples of family foundations with creative board engagement strategies including making board meetings more interactive, finding ways to engage board members with diverse backgrounds and interests, and other ongoing education options for board and family members.
