Friends and Partners

NCFP Friends of the Family, members of the Community Foundation Family Philanthropy Network, and Partner Subscribers receive exclusive access to the benefits listed below. Join today to attend webinars, join our Peer Networks, and more!

Friends of the Family and Leadership Circle

Peer Networks

NCFP’s Peer Networks cover topics of interest to those involved in family philanthropy and connect them to others interested in similar issues. Current Peer Networks exist to connect family staff, non-family staff, foundations considering limited lifespan issues, and those interested in engaging the next generation.

Family Philanthropy Webinars

The monthly Family Philanthropy Webinar series covers a diverse range of topics from family dynamics to good governance to legal issues with family foundations. Friends have access to upcoming webinars, as well as the recorded catalog of past webinars.

Personalized Staff Support

One of the biggest benefits of being an NCFP Friend is the personalized and unlimited support you will receive from NCFP staff. Whether you are looking for helping find a sample policy or board discussion paper, looking for a consultant to help guide your board leadership transition, or would like a customized presentation on Trends in Family Philanthropy, NCFP staff can help find answers to all your questions and challenges. To get started fill out our online request for information form or contact the NCFP offices at (202) 293-3424.

Pursuit of Excellence: Board Self-Assessment Tool

The Pursuit of Excellence Board Self-Assessment Tool (POE) is designed to help family foundations understand their current performance as they strive for greater effectiveness. POE walks boards through a powerful self-assessment process to quickly pinpoint areas of shared interest for the group. Pursuit of Excellence is available at no cost to current Friends and for $2,500 for those that are not currently Friends of the Family.

Community Foundations Family Philanthropy Network

Spark Session Webinars and Topical Calls

Spark Sessions are designed for community foundations to exchange practical advice, tools, and tips from peers on aspects of their family philanthropy engagement. Hour-long, content rich webinars cover topics such as measuring impact, giving circles, and business models for family philanthropy. Regular topical calls are your opportunity to learn from your peers, ask questions of each other, and provide your own insights. [Note: community foundation partners are also invited to attend NCFP’s specialized monthly Family Philanthropy Webinar series.]
