For many families, it is important that the next generation not only gives but gives as part of the family. This Family Philanthropy Webinar introduces an increasingly popular method for preparing the next generation for philanthropic service: the next generation or junior board. The webinar will introduce the variety of purposes for establishing next generation boards, steps for creating a next generation board, and a description of how they can be structured. We will also share examples of families that are using next generation boards as a tool for engaging younger family members, and perspectives of younger family members being trained in this way for governance and grantmaking.

It was refreshing to hear the dedication and enthusiasm of the next gen’s involvement in their family foundations! It gave us some good ideas on what to try with our next gen family members.

I have been in philanthropy for over 20 years, and I learned a lot from this webinar. Excellent job framing the issues, and then the eloquent youth speakers filled in the details by talking about their own experiences. Kudos!

Creating Effective Next Gen Boards was by far the best webinar I have experienced. The material was well put together, well presented, easy to follow, and very engrossing! The youth on the webinar were very articulate and experienced and provided a unique insight into the benefits and pitfalls in involving 8 year-olds and up in family philanthropy, i.e. the younger we start, the better and easier it is for everyone! Thanks for this webinar!

I have participated for years in the Family Philanthropy Webinar Series, which has been a tremendous value-add for our subscription to NCFP Friends of the Family! This just keeps getting better and better with each passing month, and I’m so very impressed with the caliber of presentations and the organization behind them! Best webinar series in the field!
