What others have said...

Just the validation, inspiration and idea-generation we needed, thank you!

Sharmilla Thakkar, Executive Director, Siragusa Foundation

This is a very critical issue right now as our family foundation grapples to determine a balance and building consensus, and I found it very helpful to hear about what others have successfully been able to do defining both an internal and external mission. I think sharing the resulting link to this webinar will be very helpful!


It was helpful for me to see how you measure family engagement and how you have created incentives for participation.


Timely topic for us – great concrete examples as well as what we can do now and in future.


Well organized and engaging.  I was surprised but rotating back and forth between presenters went really well and made it more engaging than a typical webinar.


The speakers were wonderful. All three did a spectacular job sharing their insight and experience. I felt they had a thorough understanding of the field and provided relevant and interesting information.
