As a long time consultant to family foundations, this was the best presentation on evaluating the family foundation CEO I have ever heard. The research behind NCFP’s work is superb and compelling. The presenters were excellent and the materials shared were useful for both family foundations and independent foundations as well. In fact, anyone looking at a CEO evaluation would find the materials very helpful. My comment is thanks to all and BRAVO.

Anne H. Morgan, PH.D. Consultant to Foundation and Non-profits Trustee of two family foundations, one independent foundation, and a former family foundation CEO

The content was practical and based on solid research and experience with the materials and comments shared.


Before seeing this webinar our family foundation never even thought about the all-around benefit of evaluating the CEO, but now we can’t understand why we should be without one!
