Clearly defined motivations and values are the underpinning of an effective family philanthropy strategy—they articulate a purpose, provide direction, and serve as a measure of accountability. They are also a dynamic and ever-evolving tool to guide donors and their family through the lifecycle of their philanthropic effort. Yet many families engage in social impact strategies without intentionally identifying aims and naming collective values. In this webinar, learn how to facilitate productive conversations on motivations for giving, strategies for translating shared values into action, and how to successfully carry forward values across generations.
