Spending Up: A Discussion on Strategic Lifespan at the Quixote Foundation

In the 2015 Trends Study, NCFP found that nearly three-quarters of all family foundations are still considering whether they want to limit their philanthropic lifespans. This webinar features a roundtable discussion on questions to ask your organization, values and beliefs that play into the decision, and the benefits and costs of choosing to spend up your foundation, featuring the perspectives of two leaders from The Quixote Foundation, which will complete its “spend up” process in December 2017.

Editor’s Note: Our thanks to the Fund for Shared Insight for supporting NCFP’s work in the area of transparency and family philanthropy.
