Scaling for Impact: The Needs of Growing Philanthropies

The process of scaling can be a pivotal moment—it offers an opportunity to revisit the past and reinvent what is possible for the future. What are the special challenges facing family philanthropies that are preparing for—or in the midst of—a significant scale up in philanthropic assets? As your philanthropy reaches a certain size, increasingly robust practices and approaches may be required to maximize impact.

This program will feature the stories and lessons learned of family philanthropies at various stages of scaling, and will offer a facilitated space for board members and professional staff to discuss with peers the organizational changes needed to support an influx of assets.
