Family philanthropy is a complex pursuit—one that requires clearly defined goals and objectives. However, strategy is only as good as the governance structures in place to support it, and social impact cannot be realized without a defined strategy and effective decision-making.

Tying the National Center for Family Philanthropy’s expertise in family governance and The Philanthropy Workshop’s tools for effective strategy, join CEOs Nick Tedesco and Renee Kaplan and members of each community for a dynamic conversation on the nexus between strategy and governance and discuss the multifaceted relationship between a strong governance framework and achieving your goals for impact.

Issues to be explored include:

  • Balancing individual and collective interests
  • Connecting values to strategy
  • Managing differences of opinion
  • Making decisions across generations

Presented in partnership with:
