Registration is open to foundation trustees, fund holders, and staff of ABAG member organizations. NCFP's Friends of the Family are also welcome to attend! Please directly contact Adam Donaldson, 410-727-1205 or firstname.lastname@example.org to register.
Family foundation trustees, donor advised fund holders, and foundation staff are invited to a conversation with Kathy Whelpley, Executive Vice President for the National Center for Family Philanthropy, on trends in family philanthropy.
Designed as a time to share your concerns and accomplishments in managing family philanthropy, Ms. Whelpley will reflect on what we can learn from each other and the practices of families across the country. Ms. Whelpley applies 25 years of experience in philanthropy to the research and advising efforts of The National Center for Family Philanthropy, the only nonprofit resource dedicated exclusively to families who give. Participants will receive a very brief survey in October to enrich the conversation.
Registration is open to foundation trustees, fund holders, and staff of ABAG member organizations. Lunch will be served; there is no fee to attend.
