There are resources available from this event.

To access, please LOGIN or JOIN THE FAMILY.

Most philanthropic families use multiple vehicles and a range of professional advisors to realize their mission and goals – including partnering with community foundations. How should a community foundation understand its role within that “team” of support? What are ways that community foundations add unique value and expertise in this mix? On this Spark Session, hear examples of where strategic coordination results in better results and positive ongoing relationships between and across these important players in a family’s philanthropy.
