Who should attend

Famiiles and individuals looking for tips for raising children amidst abundance.


While there is often discussion about the role that the younger generation can play in a family’s philanthropy, less often discussed is the role of philanthropy in raising children amidst abundance. Many of the challenges of growing up wealthy can be eased through engaging the next generation in philanthropy. We will discuss these challenges that wealth poses and how philanthropy might help. Our speaker will be National Center Board Member Claire Costello, who is National Foundation Executive, Philanthropy Management for Bank of America Merrill Lynch. She has worked with countless families on involving their younger members in philanthropy. She will be joined by Ariana Snowdon, Trustee of the Hill-Snowdon Foundation and senior at Wesleyan University, and Lana Volftsun, Levmar Family Foundation and a member of Grand Street.

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.
