Board members, staff, advisors, and donors in family philanthropy.


How do you make decisions related to your family’s philanthropy? Does the method you choose vary based on the importance or complexity of the decision? Different kinds of decisions made under varying conditions and circumstances may require different decision-making methods. This webinar features Ann Shulman, an attorney, mediator, and advisor to family foundations, and author of NCFP's Passages Issue Brief, "Demystifying Decisionmaking in Family Philanthropy," along with leaders from two family foundations who will share several alternative approaches to making decisions in family philanthropy.
