Proactively Managing Change Throughout the Life Cycle of Family Giving
In family philanthropy, the most challenging times are often associated with a transition or new phase in the life cycle of the foundation or fund, the area of giving, or the community served. Proactively planning ahead for transitions allows us to be the architects of change (instead of its victims). Yet research shows that most families avoid discussions and decisions related to transitions until change is imminent and emotions fully charged.
At the 2014 Family Giving Symposium, Ginny Esposito, President of the National Center for Family Philanthropy, will share her tremendous knowledge of various types of transitions and how they can play out, common mistakes made during times of change, and how family foundations/funds can build the capacity to evolve.
