Communicating: Enhancing Process, Participation, and the Public Face of the Foundation

This chapter from ‘Splendid Legacy’ presents several reasons for families seeking to publicize the work of their foundation or advised fund – as well as their grantees. Effective communications expands the base of potential charitable partners (especially grantees); informs the community and generate community support for initiatives; creates a supportive environment for grantees; and spreads the results of grantees’ work to a larger audience. This chapter provides strategies and tips for reaching these and other communications’ objectives.
