Trends in family philanthropy: A conversation with NCFP founder and president Virginia Esposito

NCFP’s recently released Trends in Family Philanthropy study was based on the first-ever nationally representative sample of family foundations, and features a treasure trove of data on topics such as family foundation governance, board activities, and grant making strategy. This complimentary event, featuring an overview of the study by NCFP President Ginny Esposito, will highlight issues and topics of interest to all family funders, such as balancing individual interests with shared priorities, considering the role of general operating support in your grantmaking, taking risks, engaging the next generation, and learning from the legacy and values of the founding donors. We will include plenty of time for questions and discussion with Ginny and your peers! 

8:30 – 9:00 am — Complimentary breakfast & networking
9:00 – 11:00 am — Facilitated presentation & discussion

This program was created by the National Center for Family Philanthropy, the country’s foremost authority on family foundation governance, management and grantmaking.


Special thanks to our partners: The Dallas Foundation and The Meadows Foundation and our corporate sponsor: The Philanthropy Centre at J.P. Morgan
