CANCELLED – Supporting Young Leaders & Next-gen to Develop Philanthropic Identities

*CANCELLED: Given that a majority of our speakers are in Texas with snow and major power outages, we have cancelled this webinar. We are wishing our speakers well during the storms.*

Family members of all ages strive to balance their individual identities—who they want to be and what they stand for—with their connection to their family’s identity, values, and culture. Youth and next-gen especially need time and space to define and act on their philanthropic goals through peer groups, youth grantmaking programs, family conversations, and more. What can families and their advisors do to help youth and next-gen leaders successfully build their philanthropic values, goals, identities? In this program, you’ll hear answers from young givers and next-gen in family philanthropy and community philanthropy.

This is a joint program of NCFP’s Community Foundations Family Philanthropy Network and its Engaging Youth Peer Network.
