The Power of a Name: Considering Privacy, Publicity, and Transparency

Using your name publicly can be a positive and productive tool in your philanthropy. Your name can also carry a lot of weight: the responsibility, publicity, and hesitance to experiment and potentially fail. For families that want to use their names more intentionally, it is important to consider these opportunities alongside the responsibilities and drawbacks of a more public identity. In this webinar, hear from families who have considered the power of their name and learn ways to be thoughtful about your own voice.
