Transparency in Family Philanthropy: Opening to the Possibilities

What choices do you have when it comes to transparency? How open and accessible is your family foundation—to the extended family, to grant seekers and partners, to the public? What approach do your colleague foundations take, and why? This guide examines how family funders are thinking, acting—and not acting—when it comes to how transparent they are with others. It encourages donors, boards, and staff of family foundations (and other giving vehicles) to purposefully consider your choices regarding transparency in grantmaking, governance, and operations.
