The definition of the American family has morphed alongside an explosion of diversity. Today, homes with unmarried parents, same-sex couples with adopted children, and single parents are as increasingly common as the traditional family of a married husband, wife, and child. With families growing ever more varied, foundations and donor-advised funds need clear advice and guidance regarding who participates in their philanthropy and in what roles. This webinar examines changing family composition, provides examples from families who have grappled with this changing definition, and tips for how your philanthropic family can adapt to the new normal.
