NCFP’s Peer Networks are small group virtual learning conversations, available to our Friends of the Family & Community Foundations (as appropriate). All sessions are held as small group video chat. You can also join by phone only if that works better.
Joining a peer network can help you connect with others facing similar challenges and successes. Sessions are not recorded as conversations are confidential OR to make space to allow you to explore ideas off the record with colleagues. To join, contact Katherine Scott, Program Director, at email@example.com.

Engaging the Next Generation Peer Network
This group of adult family members, staff, and volunteers gathers several times a year to share resources, tools, and strategies for inspiring and engaging new generations.
Family Staff and Volunteer Peer Network
Join fellow Friends of the Family who serve in a paid or volunteer family staffing roles to learn from and share with others who serve in the unique role of family or volunteer staff.
Non-family Staff Peer Network
Join your peers (senior level non-family staff) for quarterly video chats. This time is peer-directed, with NCFP staff and other outside experts serving as resources. Build a network facing the unique challenges, complications, and joys that are inherent in this role.
Kelly Chopus, President, Robins Foundation
Strategic Lifespan Peer Network
Join this special peer group of family givers and those who support them. Many in this group have decided to operate with a limited lifespan. Others are thinking about the decision to spend down. Meet colleagues in this confidential, safe space, while discussing tactics, strategies, and timely questions.
Thanks to special funding, this network is available to the entire field.
Community Foundations Family Philanthropy Network
Community foundations play vital roles across the country—they serve as hubs for donor engagement, capital, and learning. As dedicated partners in the philanthropic sector, NCFP’s goal is to help you more effectively serve your donors. The Community Foundations Family Philanthropy Network brings together foundation staff to create shared tools, exchange insights, build capacity for the field, and create new connections.
