Ashley Blanchard presents how family foundations can transition from a giving approach based on trustees’ disparate interests, to a more focused and strategic approach based on common values and interests. Focusing on her own experience as a family foundation trustee, as well as the experience of other giving families that have made a transition to more strategic grantmaking, Blanchard demonstrates how more focused philanthropy enhances family cohesion, deepens trustee engagement, and makes for more effective philanthropy.
