Who should attend

Board members and CEOs seeking advice on how to meet their fiduciary duties and gain tips about managing and understanding audits, conflict of interest, investment rules and more.

Description

The Madoff scandal has caused the failure of well respected family foundations and raised the specter of penalties for board members' inattentiveness to investment matters. Is your board doing all it should to be fiscally responsible? In this timely teleconference, learn about the board's role and fiduciary duties in prudent investing, and hear about IRS' new scrutiny of our sister public charities -- often a bellwether of what's to come for private foundations. We'll cover audits, conflict of interest, investment rules and more, so that you can protect your foundation -- and yourselves -- now and in the future.

What participants said:

NCFP consistently and brilliantly presents the very best education to family foundations and donor advisor funders. Though I actively participate in educational opportunities with many organizations in the philanthropic center it is those offered by NCFP that drill deeper into issues, savor the nuances of family grantmaking and produce products that motivate and inspire in an all embracing understanding of families and the dynamics that challenge them.

The Family Philanthropy Webinar series is a wonderful resource, allowing us to "attend" sessions from all over and to share materials with other members of our foundation. The transcripts of the sessions are also a valuable resource. Thank you for these Webinars.
